US mission closed on Sunday

The American Embassy offices including American Centre, Information Resource Centre (IRC) and Student Advising Centre will remain close on Sunday in observance of the birth anniversary of slain civil rights leader Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr Luther King's birthday is a national holiday in the United States, said a US embassy press release here yesterday.
