    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Beverly Sills, the world-renowned soprano who became the most popular opera singer in America in modern times, died on Monday evening in New York from inoperable lung cancer, her manager said. Sills, 78, died at her home in New York after being released from hospital on Friday where she was being treated for a broken rib, her manager Edgar Vincent told Reuters.
    Sills was diagnosed with the disease in May, but it was in late June that the news of her cancer was made public
