In addition to a three-day mourning period in the Kingdom, neighbouring Bahrain will also mourn the death
of the successor to the Saudi throne. The Oman Observer
reported the King of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, has ordered a three-day mourning period for Naif, who oversaw Bahrain security during his time as Saudi Interior Ministry.
As condolences pour in to Saudi Arabia, not everyone is mourning the death of the Naif, who took a tough stance on security in the Kingdom. FARS
reported residents of the Eastern Saudi city of Qatif showed their pleasure in his demise by honking car horns. The Shiite Muslims in Eastern Saudi were often targeted by Naif's strict security and Naif was considered responsible for the jailing of political activists without trial. According to FARS there are 30,000 political prisoners inside the Kingdom.
Lawmakers in Kuwait have called for action against bloggers who have posted insults about the late Prince on social network sites. Gulf News
reported Kuwaiti MP Mohammad Hayef demanded "The Kuwaiti government must silence the screeching crows who were pleased with the Prince’s death. They should be put on trial as they have no religious values that deter them from attacking the dead.” His sentiments were echoed by Kuwaiti MP Waleed Al Tabtabai who called for the government to silence anyone who insulted the late Prince.
As a mark of respect female activists have postponed a driving protest scheduled to take place Sunday to coincide with last year's Women2Drive campaign.
