INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has directed flags at state properties be flown at half-staff to honor the life and legacy of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset on Sunday. Holcomb asked Indiana businesses and residents Wednesday to also lower their flags.

Albright became the first female U.S. secretary of state in 1996 and a mentor to many current and former American statesmen and women. Her family says she died Wednesday of cancer. She was 84.
