Tehran, IRNA – Bangladesh has announced Thursday (May 23) as a day of mourning for martyrdom of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.

According to the Bangladeshi daily report, all state and semi-state bodies and educational institutions in Bangladesh as well as the country’s offices abroad will fly the national flag in half-mast position to show sympathy with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
