KUWAIT CITY:


Kuwait's interior ministry on Monday referred five suspects linked to the suicide bombing of a Shia mosque to the prosecution service for legal action, a security official said.


“We have referred five suspects accused of assisting the suicide bomber to the public prosecution,” the official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

They include the driver who took the Saudi bomber to the mosque and the car's owner and his brother, all stateless people or Bedouins.

They also include two Kuwaiti citizens -- the owner of the house used as a hideout for the driver, and his brother, the official said. "More suspects are expected to be referred later," he added.
