    R.I.P Vaclav Havel

    Vaclav Havel, Czech leader and playwright, dies at 75

    18 December 11 11:54 GMT

    Vaclav Havel, the Czech Republic's first president after the Velvet Revolution against communist rule, has died at the age of 75.
    The former dissident playwright, who suffered from prolonged ill-health, died on Sunday morning, his secretary Sabina Tancecova said.
    As president, he presided over Czechoslovakia's transition to democracy and a free-market economy.
    He oversaw its peaceful 1993 split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
    Havel first came to international fame as a dissident playwright in the 1970s through his involvement with the human rights manifesto Charter 77.
    He was comforted in his final moments by his wife Dagmara and several nuns, his secretary was quoted as saying by Reuters news agency.
