The world mourns the death of Sultan Qaboos
إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said 18/11/1940 – 10/01/2020
The Diwan of the Royal Court had announced that the condolence proceedings would end on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, on the passing away of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said bin Taimour Al-Said.
This information was revealed by the Ministry of Information on its official Twitter handle.
According to the statement, the condolence proceedings will “end on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at 12 o’clock in the afternoon”.
Now on the morning of January 15, reports of the final mourners and gestures of global solidarity are now with Oman’s Al-Sahawat Times.
Among the final statements of condolence was the minute standing silence at the UN (Read more…) and messages from Cyprus, Korea, Bangladesh, Japan, China, Bosnia (Whose National Day Sultan Qaboos celebrated in 2019) and Yemen.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
