President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has mourned, with deep sorrow and grief, the death of a number of UAE's sons who died Tuesday evening as a result of the terrorist bombing which took place at the headquarters of the Governor of Kandahar in Afghanistan.
The UAE martyrs have been named as Mohammed Ali Zainal Al Bastaki, Abdullah Mohammed Essa Obaid Al Kaabi, Ahmed Rashid Salim Ali Al Mazroui, Ahmed Abdul Rahman Ahmad Al Tunaiji, and Abdul Hamid Sultan Abdullah Ibrahim Al Hammadi, who had been on a mission to carry out humanitarian, educational and development projects in the Republic of Afghanistan.
His Highness Sheikh Khalifa prayed to Allah Almighty to bestow mercy and forgiveness upon them.
In a statement from the Ministry of Presidential Affairs earlier today, President Sheikh Khalifa directed all ministries and government departments and institutions across the country to fly the flag at half-mast for three days in honour of the martyrs who gave their lives in defence of humanitarian causes. . – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://now.wam.ae/en/news/emirates-international/1395305740271.html
