A 40-day period of mourning has been declared and government offices will close for three days.

Grieving Kuwaitis started to gather outside the late emir's Dasman Palace in Kuwait City on Sunday morning, the AFP news agency reports.

....

Sheikh Jaber will be succeeded by Crown Prince Sheikh Saad al-Abdullah al-Sabah, a distant cousin chosen as the heir apparent in 1978
