No clear details were given out but from a newspaper report but she was in a mountain areas with some friends.
She was always driven by the idea of being a foreign correspondent and had said many times that she would like to be specifically a war corespondent. A very good friend where we had few coffee meetings at KLCC and at La Bodega, she is now gone forever and may her soul rest in peace.
I love you Claudia and shall always miss you.
