MUSCAT: The people of Oman bid adieu to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos, father of modern Oman on Saturday.
The dear Leader returned to the soil of the country that he reshaped with his blood and sweat. He was laid to rest at the Royal Cemetery in Ghala. The inclement weather that prevailed in the capital for the last couple of days also gave way to ensure a ceremonious farewell.
Thousands lined up on the roads from Bait Al Barakha to Grand Mosque in Bausher to say a final goodbye to the dear leader on journey to the final resting place.
