THE LAST CARTOON FOR INTERNATIONAL ARTIST KAHIL

2/24/2003

The most prominent Arab cartoonist Mahmoud Kahil died in London where he produced a daily political commentary for pan-Arab "Asharq Al-Awsat." He was syndicated throughout the Arab world and internationally. Most leaders whom he depicted displayed framed pieces of his work. They included former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Saudi Ambassador to Washington Prince Bandar, and former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros-Ghali. As Kofi Annan has no Arab speaking press officer to provide him with Kahil's personalized view of movers and shakers, following is the last cartoon in the 7 February issue.
