    17th October 2012: the legendary Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel has died aged 60.

    Her agent, Marieke Verharen, revealed to AFP news agency: "She died during the night during her sleep". She had been suffering from cancer and in June this year she was taken to hospital in Amsterdam after suffering a stroke, which forced the postponement of further treatment, for cancer of the liver.

    It's not clear at the moment wheter she died at home or at hospital. Her agent confirmed though that her funeral would be private.

    She is survived by a son, Arthur from her relationship with the Belgian artist and writer Hugo Claus.
