KUWAIT, 22nd December, 2015 (WAM) — The Government of the State of Kuwait has released a statement mourning the loss of Nabil Al-Fadhl, Kuwaiti Member of Parliament, who died suddenly this morning during a parliamentary deliberation.

Kuwait News Agency, KUNA, reported that Al-Fadhl fell ill during a regular session which prompted the Speaker of the National Assembly, Marzouq Al-Ghanimm, to halt the meeting to allow the medical team to help him. Sadly, Al-Fadhl did not recover.

Al-Fadhl, an MP from the third constituency, was born in 1949. He had worked as a pilot at Kuwait Airways and was also a member of Kuwait Journalists Association, said KUNA.
