AMMONNEWS - His Majesty King Abdullah II on Sunday mourned the passing away of prominent Jordanian journalist Saad Silawi and actor Yasser Al-Masri, who passed away few days ago.

In a post published on His Majesty's account on Twitter, King Abdullah paid tribute to Silawi's and Al-Masri's ethics, generosity and their love to the homeland. He said the media and art are noble messages both Saad Al-Silawi, and Yasser Al-Masri, carried out professionally and honorably.

"Our consolation is that the homeland that brought up both of them will always be generous," the King added.

Silawi passed away yesterday in Beirut, following a respiratory failure that caused a cardiac arrest, due to the disease he suffered form for years, while Al-Masri passed away on August 23 in a car accident in the Zarqa governorate.
