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.
