    A Mongolian union leader opposed to the proposed sale of his country’s coal mining industry to China set himself on fire in protest, according to reports. “The government no longer supports our company, families of the workers are forced to starve,” said the unnamed man, according to the Daily Mail. “This is why I will burn myself for the people of Mongolia and our children.” Two men use their jackets to try to extinguish the flames, as members of the press rush over to try to help, too. The man was rushed to the National Trauma and Orthopedic Research Center of Mongolia, where he was in critical condition after suffering burns over 40 percent of his body.
