Dolores O'Riordan, singer with The Cranberries, has died aged 46

Holmes says the singer's family is "devastated" by the news.

From Limerick, The Cranberries achieved worldwide success in the 1990s with a string of hits including Linger and Zombie.

The 46-year-old Irish singer was in London for a recording session when she died, BBC reports.

O'Riordan, who was 46, died "suddenly" according to the statement, but no details were given on the cause of her death.

9 killed in clashes near Tripoli airport
The M'eiga International Airport of Tripoli witnessed frequent clashes and armed attacks, most recently in October 2017. The GNA said the attack had "endangered the lives of passengers, affected aviation safety and terrorised residents".

The band was one of the most successful rock groups of that decade, selling over 40 million records, according to the group's official website. Their debut release, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, was a United Kingdom #1 album and spawned hits like Linger and Dreams.

Dolores also released two solo albums between 2003 and 2009 while the band were on an extended hiatus.

She is survived by her ex-husband Don Burton and by her three children, Taylor Baxter, Molly Leigh and Dakota Rain.

In 2014, O'Riordan was accused of assaulting three police officers and a flight attendant during a flight from NY to Ireland.
