BEIJING, March 7 (Xinhua) -- The similarities found in the self-immolations in China's Tibetan-populated regions have pointed to orchestration behind the scene with a transparent political motive, officials said here Wednesday.

Wu Zegang, chief of the Aba prefecture of southwest China's Sichuan province, said that police have investigated over the self-immolations that broke out in Tibetan areas in the provinces of Sichuan and Qinghai bordering Tibet in recent months, finding that the victims were used by separatists to create chaos.
