State-run KUNA: Kuwaiti actor Abdulredha dies at age 78

KUWAIT CITY — State-run news agency KUNAA is reporting that Abdulhussain Abdulredha, Kuwait's most prominent actor and comedian, has died. He was 78 years old.

The actor, who delighted audiences with his comic portrayal of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, was reported to be in a coma in a London hospital earlier in the week.

When news of his illness was first announced, Abdulredha received scores of well-wishes, including a phone call from the emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah.

Abdulredha began his career in the mid-1960s as one of the founders of TV drama and theater in the Gulf.
