Buddhist Monks burning themselves alive

A man sits impassively in the central market square, he has set himself on fire performing a ritual suicide in protest against governmental anti-Buddhist policies. Crowds gathered to protest in Hue after the South Vietnamese government prohibited Buddhists from carrying flags on Buddha's birthday. Government troops opened fire to disperse the dissidents, killing nine people, Diems government blamed the incident on the Vietcong and never admitted responsibility. The Buddhist leadership quickly organized demonstrations that eventually led to seven monks burning themselves to death.

When it comes to amazing photographs, I think snaps of nature are the best. From a breath-taking view from the top of a mountain or tornado touching down, it doesn't get much cooler than nature at work.

Don't get me wrong, there's some pretty powerful pictures up there, especially the Saigon police Chief murdering the "suspected" Vietcong, but I just have a thing for storms and things like that.
