Kuwaiti war hero Shaikh Saud Al Nasser dies

January 23, 2012

Shaikh Saud Al Nasser, the Kuwaiti former ambassador to Washington who played a major role in getting the US to lead a multinational coalition to liberate his country from the Iraqi occupation in January 1991, has died.

A brief statement issued by the Emiri court late on Saturday evening said that Shaikh Saud, 68, would be buried on Sunday afternoon.

In 1992, Shaikh Saud joined the cabinet for the first time and became information minister. He held the portfolio until March 1998 when he was appointed oil minister in a cabinet reshuffle.

Shaikh Saud this month returned home following medical treatment at a London hospital.
