His Highness the Personal Representative of the Amir Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani arrived on Wednesday  morning in Washington, to attend the funeral of former US President George HW Bush.

The former president was hailed at his state funeral on Wednesday as a warrior-statesman of uncommon personal kindness who went from being a hero of American conflicts to representing a bygone era of civility in politics.

Amid an unusual bipartisan spirit at the service at the Washington National Cathedral, both Republican and Democratic politicians honoured a president who called for a "kinder, gentler" nation.
