Kuwait TV cuts to Koranic verses in possible sign of death in ruling family

DUBAI, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Kuwait television interrupted regular programming to cut to Koranic verses on Tuesday, a move which often signifies the death of a senior member of the Gulf Arab state’s ruling family.

There was no immediate announcement from authorities.
