It is not clear how closely related Sheikh Talal is to Emir Sheikh Sabah
Reports from Kuwait say a member of the ruling family has been sentenced to death for drug trafficking.
Correspondents say it is thought to be one of the first times that such a sentence has been given to a member of the ruling Sabah family.
Sentencing Sheikh Talal Nasser al-Sabah to death, the judge said he had "willingly walked the path of evil".
It was not immediately clear how closely related Sheikh Tala is to senior members of the ruling family.
The judge in the case said Sheikh Tala's crimes had "threatened society... especially young people", a Kuwaiti newspaper reported.
He was also fined US $35,000 dollars.
Sheikh Talal was convicted of trading in hashish, money laundering and the illegal possession of weapons, press reports said.
Saddam Hussein was president of Iraq from 1979 until 2003
Libya has said it will build a statue of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, executed in Baghdad on Saturday.
It would show him standing on the gallows with a Libyan resistance leader who fought Italian occupation, executed in 1931, Libya's Jana news agency said.
Libya declared three days of mourning after Saddam Hussein's death and cancelled public celebrations around the Eid religious holiday.
He was sentenced to death after being convicted of crimes against humanity.
An Iraqi court handed down the sentence in November after a year-long trial over the killings of 148 Shias from the town of Dujail in the 1980s.
Iraq's prime minister hailed the execution, but it also sparked protests among Sunni communities in the country.
Correspondents say the news was met with a mixture of surprise and anger in some parts of the Arab world.
On the eve of the hanging, Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi said Saddam Hussein was a prisoner of war who must be tried by Iraq's invaders, the US and Britain, according to Reuters news agency.
Flags on Libyan government buildings flew at half-mast following his death.
Cut ties with regional countries who criticized execution
They have no regard for suffering of Kuwaitis: MPs
KUWAIT CITY: MPs have asked the government to cut ties with regional countries, which have criticized the execution of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein as "they have no regard for the sufferings of Kuwaitis."
Calling these countries supporters of Iraqi aggression against Kuwait, MPs urged the government to develop a new strategy to deal with them. "The new strategy should take into account the behavior of these countries in the past, present and in the future," they say.
Regretting the fact that some of these countries were given huge financial aid by the country, MPs asked the government to seek approval of the Parliament before it doles out financial grants to other countries.
"From now onwards, we will not allow government to take such decisions without any supervision," says MP Musallam Al-Barrak.
As a member of the Parliamentary Committee for Financial Affairs, Al-Barrak says he will ask for opening the file of Kuwaiti foreign relations.
KUWAIT: A large number of MPs are preparing to call for convening a special session following the Eid holidays to debate Kuwait's foreign policy towards Arab countries that have seen protests against the execution of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The National Action Bloc, which comprises eight MPs, called on the government in a statement yesterday to "revise its foreign policy with regards to Arab countries" on the basis of their reaction to the execution. The bloc also said it will request for convening a special session to debate the issue and call for halting foreign aid to those countries. Lawmakers have in the past two days strongly condemned the positions of Yemen, Libya, Palestinian factions and certain groups in Jordan that deplored Saddam's execution and hailed him as a martyr. Spokesman of the Popular Action Bloc MP Musallam Al-Barrak yesterday launched a scathing attack on Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Barrak described them as "the orphans of Saddam Hussein who will face the same dark fate". "Yemen's president has said that Saddam's execution is an insult to all Arabs and we say that it is an insult to all leaders who oppress their people. Saddam has gone to the dustbin of history while his orphans wait for their dark fate like Saleh and Gaddafi," Barrak said.
He said that Kuwait has helped Yemen in almost every field while the Yemeni president "rushes to defend his master". Barrak said the call by Saddam's daughter to Saleh asking him to bury her father in Yemen "only reveals the suspicious relationship between the tyrant Saddam and Saleh". The lawmaker regretted the flow of Kuwaiti financial aid to Yemen and other countries, the latest of which was a $200m interest-free loan to Yemen. "It appears that our destiny is to increase aid and help to countries while they increase their insults towards us. We urge the government to defend the dignity of the Kuwaiti people," Barrak said.
He also blasted the Libyan leader who declared three days of mourning in respect of Saddam Hussein. Barrak had also strongly criticised Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas for criticising the execution of Saddam and branding it as an assassination. He called for halting all forms of financial aid to the Palestinian Authority.
Meanwhile, the visit of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniya to Kuwait is becoming increasingly doubtful following Saddam's execution and the reactions that followed. Haniya was expected in Kuwait on Saturday, but sources said that the Palestinian premier's visit is not yet confirmed and some work is still needed to be done.
this ISN'T an RnB version of Con te Partiro. It is a song sung at a charity even in France where different singers are brought together, and they all sing a song that is not of their usual genre, which is why they don't always sound so good. But it's all for fun, so it's not such a big deal. I don't like the guy's voice in this clip, but the voice of Amel (the second lady singer to appear) has a nice powerful Rnb voice, so it got me thinking, that the song could be subtly transformed into something totally different. It would maintain its integrity and its beauty, but it would sound completely different with a powerful soul/rnb voice. I wish some singers with powerful voice would do this song.
