Former US president George HW Bush dead at 94

Former US president George HW Bush, who presided over the end of the Cold War and routed Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi army but lost a chance for a second term after breaking a no-new-taxes pledge, died on Friday at the age of 94, a family spokesman said.

Bush, the 41st president of the United States, lived longer than any of his predecessors. His death at 10.10 pm local time was announced in a statement issued by longtime spokesman Jim McGrath. The cause of death is unknown.

His son, former president George W Bush, issued a statement on his father’s demise. “George HW Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for,”.

Bush Sr, as he was popularly called, is survived by his five children. His wife Barbara died in April this year.
