Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular declaring Sunday to Tuesday, August 19 to 21, 2012, as non-working public holidays in Bahrain to mark the upcoming Eid Al Fitr holidays for the Islamic year 1433.

In addition, as Saturdays are one of the weekly days of rest in Bahrain (2006-08-02), the circular specifies that an additional, day in lieu, public holiday will be observed should Eid al Fitr fall on a Saturday (very unlikely).
