US FILM STAR PATRICK SWAYZE DIES !

Dirty Dancing film star Patrick Swayze has died aged 57, his publicist says.
Annett Wolf said that the US actor, who had been battling pancreatic cancer for nearly two years, died with family at his side on Monday.
Swayze was diagnosed with advanced stage four pancreatic cancer in January last year.
The actor had been starring in US TV show The Beast since being diagnosed with the disease. He had also planned to write a memoir with his wife.
"Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," said a statement by Annett Wolf quoted by the Associated Press.
No other details were given.
Patrick Swayze was best-known for starring in Dirty Dancing and Ghost.
In January, the star admitted he might only have two years to live, but denied he was near death.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most virulent forms of cancer which medical experts say has a 5% five-year survival rate.
