Word of Coretta Scott King's death has come from Atlanta's former mayor, Andrew Young. Young broke the news in a call to NBC's "Today" show.

He says, "I understand she was asleep last night and her daughter tried to wake her up."

Martin Luther King Junior's widow was 78. She turned a life shattered by her husband's assassination into one devoted to ensuring his legacy of human rights and equality. King suffered a serious stroke and heart attack last year.
