KUWAIT CITY / ANKARA (AA) – The body of Kuwait's late emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, arrived in Kuwait on Wednesday from the US.

The body was received by Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, the country’s new ruler, as well as senior statesmen and princes.

Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani attended the funeral prayer.

Sheikh Sabah died at age 91 in the US, where he had been receiving medical treatment.
