Dr. Ernest Bau Koroma, the President of Sierra Leone, who was due to arrive in Israel this week on a state visit, the first by a president of his country, has cancelled his plans.

The President's mother died over the weekend, and before attending to affairs of state, he must first attend to family matters.

Sierra Leone Honorary Consul David Ben Bassat was hopeful that the visit could be rescheduled for a later date this year.
