On Tuesday, the Union for National Salvation (USN) announced that he had died in the Western town of Quimper in the French country where he was undergoing medical treatment. Party representative Maki Houbed-Gaba said Youssouf Houmed, had been suffering from cerebal hemorrhage and had been in France receiving treatment since August 2017.
He had been suffering from cerebral hemorrhage which is an emergency condition in which a ruptured blood vessel causes bleeding inside the brain. Thorough lab tests or imaging is always required to determine the severity of the disease and requires a medical diagnosis. Though medical practitioners say treatment can help, but this condition can’t be cured. Youssouf Houmed had been in France for treatment at the time of his passing.
He was laid to rest on Tuesday morning at the Muslim section of the cemetery in Quimper, Houbed-Gaba said. At the time of his death, Ahmed Youssouf had been the leader of the seven-party opposition coalition formed in January 2013
