ISLAMABAD: Pakistan observed a day of national mourning on Monday to honor the late Kuwaiti emir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who was laid to rest a day earlier.  

Sheikh Nawaf died on Saturday aged 96 and was buried at the Sulaibikhat Cemetery the following day after a private funeral attended by select relatives. He has been succeeded by his half-brother Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Kuwait’s day-to-day ruler during much of Sheikh Nawaf’s reign due to his ill-health.
