Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first female prime minister, dies at 87
Henry Chu and Patt MorrisonLONDON -- Margaret Thatcher, the grocer's daughter who punched through an old-boy political network to become Britain's first female prime minister, stamping her personality indelibly on the nation and pursuing policies that reverberate decades later, has died. She was 87.
The BBC read out a statement early Monday afternoon from Thatcher's friend and former advisor, Tim Bell, saying: "It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announce that their mother, Baroness Thatcher, died peacefully following a stroke this morning."
Prime Minister David Cameron, the current leader of Thatcher's Conservative Party, said that his country had lost "a great leader, a great prime minister and a great Briton."
