Emir Of Kuwait, Sabah Al-Sabah, Dies Aged 91

Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, has died.

According to the royal court, he died on Tuesday at the age of 91.

“With great sadness and sorrow, we mourn… the death of Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Emir of the State of Kuwait,” the minister in charge of royal affairs, Sheikh Ali Jarrah Al-Sabah, said in a televised statement.

The emir had been receiving hospital treatment in the United States since July after undergoing surgery in Kuwait City.

The palace did not reveal any details on the nature of the emir’s illness or treatment, and where he died.

The emir, who has ruled the oil-rich Gulf state since 2006, had his appendix removed in 2002, two years after having a pacemaker fitted. In 2007, he underwent urinary tract surgery in the US.

He was regarded as the architect of the nation’s modern foreign policy.
