BEIJING, May 16 (Xinhua) -- National broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) will on Thursday evening air a documentary on self-immolations that have occurred in the country's Tibetan-inhabited areas.

Centering on so-called "Self-immolation Guide" produced by the Dalai Lama clique and how the clique has manipulated the incidents, the documentary is aimed at helping the international community to understand the truth of the situation, according to a statement issued by central authorities.

The statement said the program was created through in-depth research and interviews conducted by CCTV reporters in areas where the incidents occurred.

CCTV International will broadcast the documentary in Chinese at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. The program will later be aired in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Russian.
