The first woman to serve as U.S. Secretary of State has passed away.
Madeleine Albright's family shared the news in a short statement on Wednesday, saying the 84-year-old died after battling cancer. "We have lost a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend," the statement said.
Albright was born in Prague as Marie Jana Korbelova, coming to the U.S. in 1948 as a refugee, her family said.
This is a developing story.
