Malaysia's national news agency says the wife of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has died of breast cancer at the age of 64.



Endon Mahmood passed away Thursday at the family's official residence. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002, shortly after her twin sister received the same diagnosis.

Endon recently underwent weeks of treatment in the United States. In Malaysia, she had been involved in breast cancer education and awareness events.
