Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah, dies at 91
Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah had not been keeping well for several years and underwent a surgery in the US last month for an undisclosed ailment. A widely respected monarch, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres described him as a symbol of "wisdom and generosity."

KUWAIT, Sept 29: The Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, 91, died on Tuesday. Sabah had been facing health problems in recent years. He underwent a surgery in the US last month for an undisclosed ailment.

A widely respected monarch, Sabah ruled the Gulf State for 14 years. For 40 years he served as foreign minister, and later became the Prime Minister and the country's monarch. He has been widely described as a seasoned diplomat who tried to heal rifts between feuding Gulf States.

"With sincere sadness, Kuwait, its people, the people of the Arab and Muslim world, and the people of the world offer their condolences for the death of Emir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Sabah, may God forgive him," said Minister of Royal Court Affairs Sheikh Ali Jarrah Al-Sabah on State TV.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was an extraordinary symbol of "wisdom and generosity," a messenger of peace and a bridge builder. Saudi Arabia's King and Crown Prince, Lebanese President Michel Aoun and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi were among those who expressed condolences. Jordan has declared 40 days of mourning.

The Emir will be succeeded by Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al- Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, 83, a half brother, who has served as interior minister.
