Earlier today, the Nepalese Council of Ministers declared a one-off public holiday for tomorrow, Sunday, March 6, 2011, to mourn the death of former Prime Minister Krishna Prasad Bhattarai, who died last night.

Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (2001-01-13), Nepal observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays, meaning that Sunday is normally a regular working day.
