Kuwait’s emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber al-Sabah was admitted to hospital on Wednesday for medical checks after suffering from a cold, according to the Emiri Court Affairs minister.
The official KUNA news agency quoted Emiri Court Affairs Minister Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah as saying Sheikh Sabah would undergo “normal medical checks”, without giving further details.
In 2014, Sheikh Sabah, 88, had undergone a surgery in the U.S., but the Emiri Court did not reveal the nature of the surgery.
Sheikh Sabah has ruled the Gulf country since 2006.Last Mod: 22 Kasım 2017, 12:50
