Kulsoom was admitted to London's Harley Street Clinic for cancer treatment in June and her health deteriorated last night. She was placed on life support earlier in the day. Her death was announced by Shehbaz Sharif, Kulsoom's brother-in-law and the president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and her son Hussain Nawaz, Geo News reported. The former first lady of Pakistan was diagnosed with lymphoma (throat) cancer in August last year.
