We are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of Bahrain, and would like to extend our sincere condolences to the Royal family, AUBH students and staff, and the people of Bahrain.
His leadership and vision shaped Bahrain into the prosperous kingdom it is today, and his death is a great loss to all. His Royal Highness touched the lives of many within the Bahraini community, and he was an active supporter of education at all levels.
Official mourning has been declared, and accordingly, classes this afternoon will be cancelled, and AUBH will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, November 12th. Classes will resume on Sunday, November 15th.
We ask Allah the Almighty to rest his soul in peace and to give both his family and the kingdom strength during this period of mourning.
