A Tibetan exile lit himself on fire and ran shouting through a demonstration in New Delhi on Monday, just before a visit by China's president and following dozens of self-immolations done in China in protest of its rule over Tibet.
The police swept through the New Delhi protest a few hours later, detaining scores of Tibetans.
The man apparently had doused himself with something highly flammable and was engulfed in flames when he ran past the podium where speakers were criticizing China and President Hu Jintao's visit.
