SULAIMANI — A man self-immolated in Sulaimani’s Bakhi Gshti park on Monday evening (June 29) and passed away a few hours later.

An NRT reporter said that by-standers extinguished the fire, but that the man had suffered near total burns because he had used gasoline as an accelerant.

He was taken to Sulaimani Emergency’s burn unit, but passed away shortly after arriving.

According to his family, the man was born in 1965 and was married with children and had a job as a truck driver. They said that he had not given any indication of depression and did not have any social problems that would suggest foul play.
