MIAMI : Jigme Norbu, the nephew of the Dalai Lama, died late Monday when he was struck by a car while marching in a pro-Tibet demonstration on a Florida highway, officials said.

The Highway Patrol said in a brief statement Tuesday that Norbu was walking on the edge of a local highway in north-eastern Florida when he was hit by an SUV at 7:26 pm Monday (0026 GMT Tuesday), and "was determined to be deceased upon the arrival of emergency services."

Norbu, 43, was on a Valentine Day "Walk for Peace" with other activists to raise awareness of human rights abuses in Tibet, according to an activist website.

Dedicating merits to him.  May he attain a fortunate rebirth.  What a horrible way to die.
