Shaikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Dies

I recently read the following news on gulf news. I guess other then the government offices being closed for a long time, private holiday will also be announced for at least 3 days.

Dubai: His Highness Shaikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has died.

He was 62 years old.
