Breaking: Sources from Cuba report Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas killed

Around the net, sources report that Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas died in a car accident. His Twitter had this:

Oswaldo PayaOswaldo Paya?@oswaldopaya

 soy carlos paya en madrid, policia llamo a rosa maria hija de oswaldo paya y le dijeron que habia fallecido.

My translation, I am Carlos Paya in Madrid, the police called Rosa Maria, the daughter of Oswaldo Paya and told her he was dead.

Numerous sources on Twitter report his death was confirmed by a church official in Bayamo. He was apparently killed in an auto accident; I have no details at this time, stay tuned.

If the reports are true, then Cuba has lost a great champion of human rights and freedom for the Cuban people.
