PETALING JAYA: The body of Malaysian journalist Claudia Theophilus, who was killed in Lebanon, is expected to arrive at KLIA this evening.
Umno Youth public complaints bureau chairman Datuk Muhammad Khairun Aseh said the body was identified by her sister, Dora, at a hospital in Baakleen, some 90 minutes from Beirut.
Claudia, 42, a producer with Al-Jazeera English Online died on Feb 2.
She and her two friends had been playing with rifles when one of the weapons went off and killed her.
Her sister Dora said the funeral would be held on Monday and the mass would be held at 10am at the Church of Visitation, Jalan Yam Tuan, Seremban.
The family had requested that no photographs or video recordings of them grieving be published and broadcast.
“We are grateful for all the help, support and kindness shown to us by everyone who shares our loss, and we hope you will continue to keep Claudia in your prayers,” she said in a statement yesterday.
