Fact #187447


Short story:

An elderly Buddhist monk, Thich Quang Duc, sets fire to himself on a main intersection in Saigon, Vietnam, to protest against the rule of Ngo Dinh Diem, the American-backed leader of Vietnam. Several decades later, a photograph of this horrific incident will be used as the cover of the 1992 album Rage Against The Machine by Rage Against The Machine.
