Wife of president dies at 73

The wife of Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, Nehama Rivlin, died on Tuesday at 73 a few months after a lung transplant, the president’s office said.

Rivlin, whose formal title was Israel’s first lady, had undergone the lung transplant in March due to the pulmonary fibrosis that afflicted her in recent years, a statement said.

In Israel, the presidency is largely ceremonial and executive power rests with the prime minister, but her death led to an outpouring of grief from across the political spectrum.
