A Tibetan man has set himself on fire in New Delhi in protest against a visit by China’s President Hu Jintao later this week.

The man was quickly rushed to hospital with severe burns but his condition remains unclear.

Around 30 Tibetans have set themselves on fire, mostly in southwestern China, in the past year to protest against Chinese rule in Tibet, according to Tibetan rights groups. At least 20 of them have died.
