A Tibetan activist unfurled a Tibetan flag and then set himself on fire outside the Mumbai hotel where Chinese President Hu Jintao was staying to protest Chinese rule in the Himalayan region.
Police said Hu and his staff were inside the hotel at the time of the incident.
The man and six other Tibetan youths drove up to the hotel in two taxis, jumped out and began chanting slogans against China's occupation of Tibet. He then doused his pants with a liquid and set them on fire, according to an Associated Press photographer at the scene.
