ROME (Reuters) - Eluana Englaro, the 38-year-old comatose woman who was at the center of an Italian right-to-die case, died on Monday night, politicians said.

A minister announced her death in Senate, which was debating a law that would have forced the clinic where she was hospitalized to resume feeding her.
