By Samyuktha

Dharamsala (Himachal Pradesh), Apr 28 (ANI): The Dalai Lama and hundreds of Tibetan monks and nuns offered prayers in Dharamsala here on Tuesday for victims of the recent Tibet earthquake.

Prayers were held at Tsuglagkhang, the main Buddhist temple, and were attended by many locals and representatives of different non-profit organizations.

"The official report from the Chinese Government says that over 2,000 people have died, so because of the earthquake in Tibet, thousands of Tibetan people died. There are many people, who are suffering right now; there are many orphans who don't have any parents," said Tibetan Youth Congress President Tsewang Rigzin.

"We are gathered here today to pray for the deceased and show solidarity with our brothers and sisters inside the Tibet," he added.

Reportedly, over 2,000 people died last week in the tremors that rocked the Qinghai province in the autonomous Tibet region of China. (ANI)
