Flags were at half-mast, streets were nearly deserted and shops were closed on Wednesday, as Kuwait announced 40 days of mourning after Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah passed away.
Billboards portraying the late Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah were seen alongside several roads.
Sheikh Sabah died in the US at the age of 91, where he had been hospitalised since July, following a surgery in Kuwait.
The cause of death has not been specified.
He will be succeeded by his half brother, crown prince Sheikh Nawaf Al Ahmad Al Sabah.
