Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah dies at 91

Kuwait on Tuesday confirmed the death of Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, who was 91. The emir had been receiving medical treatment in the United States. Earlier, Kuwait television had interrupted regular programming to cut to Quranic verses, a move which often signifies the death of a senior member of the Gulf Arab state’s ruling family.
