The one who was the first president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Abolhasán Bani Sadr, 88, has died this Saturday at a Paris Hospital, according to the official IRNA agency.

"After a long illness, Abolhasán Bani Sadr died on Saturday at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in the French capital," said the agency citing an allegate of the State Exjefe.

Bani Sadr lived in France since 1981, when the country welcomed him as a political refugee. He was intimate from the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatolá Jomeini, and in 1980 he was elected president of the country, although he was dismissed 17 months later.

After having lived in the French cities of Auvers-sur-Oise and Cacan, Badi Sadr resided in Versailles, very close to Paris, since May 1984.
