Bangladesh is set to observe one-day state mourning on Saturday in honour of Bangladesh’s true friend and Japan’s former prime minister Shinzo Abe who was assassinated on Friday.
The Cabinet Division issued a notification in this regard on Friday evening.
The national flag will be kept at half-mast at all government, semi-government and autonomous institutions and educational institutions, and Bangladesh missions abroad in observance of the mourning day.

Special prayers will be offered on Saturday seeking eternal peace for the departed soul of Abe.
Shinzo Abe, 67, died after being shot while giving a campaign speech in southern Japan.
Abe immediately collapsed and was seen bleeding before he was taken to hospital.

The attack on Shinzo Abe, the man who remained Japan’s longest-serving prime minister, shocked the entire world.

RIP. The former PM Abe is liked by most of the Japanese. I personally like him. I was expecting his 3rd return as the PM sometime in the future. He was only 67. I feel very sad that he had to face an untimely death.
