FALKLANDS FLAGS AT HALF-MAST FOR KING FAHD

Flags in the Falkland Islands are being flown at half mast as a mark of respect for the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia.  Crown Prince Abdullah, King Fahadís successor, announced the death on Sunday.


 


As Crown Prince, King Fahd helped resolved the conflict in Lebanon as well as working for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.  The King ascended his throne in 1982 and prior to that, he was a Crown Prince for seven years. He was a keen ally of the United States.


 


King Fahdís death was expected because he had been in deteriorating health since suffering a stroke in 1995.  Prime Minister, Tony Blair, said that King Fahd had great vision and leadership and that he inspired his countrymen for a quarter of a century.
