Rescue teams have recovered Sheikh Ahmed bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s body from the site of a glider crash in Morocco.
Sheikh Ahmed, a younger brother of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the ruler of Abu Dhabi and UAE president, was involved in a crash last Friday.
Funeral prayers will be offered at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque after Asr prayers in Abu Dhabi after the arrival of Sheikh Ahmed’s body.
The Ministry of Presidential Affairs announced a three-day mourning period starting from Wednesday, during which flags will fly half mast.
Sheikh Ahmed was managing director of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA).
