Kuwait defense minister, emir’s son, has lung tumor removed


KUWAIT CITY: Kuwait’s defense minister, the eldest son of the country’s ruling emir, has undergone surgery to have a tumor in his lungs removed.

The state-run KUNA news agency reported Tuesday that 70-year-old Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al Sabah underwent the procedure. It did not say if the tumor was cancerous.

Sheikh Nasser is the son of Kuwait’s 89-year-old ruler, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah. He became defense minister in December, taking his first ministerial position in the US-allied nation on the Arabian Gulf.
