According to numerous reports, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died. May she rest in peace.

And from Newsweek, a look at the Iron Lady's life in picture form.

Update (8:09 AM): The Telegraph has a few details:

Her son, Sir Mark, and daughter Carol confirmed that she died this morning. Lord Bell, her spokesman, said: "It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning. A further statement will be made later."
