Barbados names gov't offices for US attorney gen

The Associated Press: "BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's visit to Barbados is only for three days, but his name will remain even after he leaves.

The country is renaming a collection of government offices the Eric H. Holder Jr. Municipal Complex to honor Washington's No. 1 prosecutor.

'I have been fortunate in my life to have received much undeserved recognition,' he said. 'Nothing means more to me than that which you are doing today.'

Holder's father was born in Barbados, and his mother has roots on the island as well."
