Justin Trudeau spends vacation on Aga Khan's private island in Bahamas
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spent his vacation at a private Island of Ismaili Muslims' spiritual leader, Aga Khan in Bahamas.

A spokesman for Justin Trudeau confirmed in a statement that Trudeau, his family and a few friends were invited to join the Aga Khan on Bell Island for the holidays.

"As you are aware, his Highness and the Prime Minister have been close family friends for many years. As is the usual course, the Prime Minister will be reimbursing the costs of his (and his family’s) flights to and from Nassau. No friends were on the Challenger," Cameron Ahmad wrote in an email.

The Aga Khan was an honorary pallbearer at the funeral of Trudeau’s father, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau.

The Aga Khan is the hereditary leader to the world's 12 to 15 million Ismaili Muslim population, with a profile among his followers similar to that of the Pope among Catholics.

He's also one of the world's wealthiest royals, according to a 2010 Forbes magazine list.
