Another Tibetan man has died after setting himself on fire in protest at Chinese rule over his homeland.

Tamdrin Dorjee killed himself near the Tsoe monastery in the north-west Gansu province of China.

More than 50 Tibetans have reportedly set themselves on fire since such protests began in 2009. The BBC says the majority are believed to have died.
