Bahrain: Khalifa Bin Salman’s recuperation in Berlin
Prime Minister Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al-Khalifa is recuperating from his recent medical treatment in Germany. On 8 January, the Bahrain News Agency reported that King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa had visited the premier at his residence in Berlin where he “congratulated him on his full recovery”. King Hamad returned to Bahrain two days later. Until now it had been unclear where the 84-year-old premier was receiving treatment; the nature of his ailment remains a mystery. The veteran PM has been out of public life since last October.
