The President of the Republic His Excellency Alhagie Dr. Yahya AJJ Jammeh has declared Friday 10th November 2006 as a National Day of Mourning throughout the country.

This follows the fire incident at the Kanifing East Estate on Monday which claimed the lives of six of the 18 young men.

All flags would be flown at half mast throughout the day, but the day has not been declared a public holiday.
