Guinea-Bissau's Council of Ministers demands a commission be set up to investigate into the assassinations of President Joao Bernado Vieira and army chief of staff Batista Tagme Na Wai, according to a government statement obtained here.

The 32-member government led by Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Junior, which was nominated by President Vieira in January, urged Prosecutor General Luis Manel Cabral to immediately create a commission to bring the killings to light.

The government announced a national mourning over the death of President Vieira, who will be given a national funeral with all honors of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, said the government statement, released hours after the West African country's longest serving president was killed early on Monday.

The government also decided to accord all state honors to Na Wai, who was killed in a bomb blast on Sunday evening before the president was assassinated the next day.

File photo taken on Sept. 16, 2008 shows Guinea-Bissau's President Joao Bernardo Vieira in Beijing, capital of China. Reports said that Vieira was killed by soldiers in clashes early March 2, 2009 after a bomb attack, in which the country's military chief was also killed
