Gaye Coşar, a Turkish journalist, has lost her life following a road accident in the Armenian capital Yerevan, the Hurriyet Daily News reports.

Coşar, who was in the country as part of the Armenia-Turkey Normalization Process program, funded by the European Union, succumbed to her wounds on Jan. 7 in Yerevan, after the accident took place last week.

The 40-year-old had worked at daily Evrensel, broadcaster NTV and lately at Al-Jazeera’s Turkey arm. She also worked as an interpreter for a number of organizations and foundations.

Coşar had received a bursary from the Hrant Dink Foundation, named after the assassinated Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink.

Her family said she would be buried in the Central Anatolian province of Kütahya after her body is brought back from Armenia.
