In this Jan. 8, 2013 photo released by China's Xinhua News Agency, Yu Zhengsheng, front, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, speaks during a seminar held with Tibetan Buddhist representatives in Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Sichuan Province. Yu visited Ganzi at the center of the self-immolations, urging Buddhist clergy to be patriotic and denouncing the Dalai Lama. Chinese authorities are responding to an intensified wave of Tibetan self-immolation protests against Chinese rule by clamping down even harder — criminalizing the suicides, arresting protesters' friends and even confiscating thousands of satellite TV dishes.
