WASHINGTON: Colin Powell, former U.S. secretary of state, on Monday died of COVID-19 complications at the age of 84. 

"He was fully vaccinated. We want to thank the medical staff at Walter Reed National Medical Center for their caring treatment. We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather and a great American," Mr. Powell's family said in a post on his Facebook page.

As a four-star Army general, he was chairman of the military's Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George H.W. Bush during the 1991 Gulf War in which U.S.-led forces expelled Iraqi troops from neighboring Kuwait.

Mr. Powell, a moderate Republican and a pragmatist, later served as Secretary of State under President George W. Bush.
