The Prime Minister of Bahrain, Khalifa bin Salman al Khalifa, the only head of government who has known the island since shortly after its independence in 1971, has died at the age of 84, as reported by the Bahraini Royal Household on Wednesday.

The prime minister has died at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, United States, for reasons that have not transpired. The authorities have decreed a week of official mourning and have announced that official institutions will be closed for three days starting Thursday.

The funeral will be organized once the body is repatriated, although it will be “limited to a few relatives,” according to the official note, collected by the BNA news agency.

Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa belongs to the ruling dynasty in Bahrain, that of the Al Khalifa, and had maintained a basically protocol agenda in recent weeks. Among the latest messages from his office, according to BNA, is a congratulation to Joe Biden on his victory in the US presidential election.
