Update : Seven sentenced to death over Kuwaiti mosque bombing-news agency

Seven defendants were sentenced to death on Tuesday for the Islamist militant suicide bombing of a mosque in June in Kuwait that killed 27 people, the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA reported.

Eight other suspects were given prison sentences ranging from two to 15 years by a Kuwaiti criminal court, KUNA reported. Fourteen other defendants were acquitted.

Update : Kuwait charged 29 people Tuesday over the suicide bombing of a Shiite mosque last month, claimed by the Islamic State group, that killed 26 people and wounded more than 200. The attack, carried out by a Saudi, was the worst in Kuwait’s history.

Those charged included seven Kuwaitis, five Saudis, three Pakistanis, 13 stateless people known as bedouns, and another person at large, the prosecution said, cited by the official KUNA news agency. Out of them, 24 are detained in Kuwait and the remaining five will be tried in absentia.

A suicide bomber has targeted a Shia mosque around the time of Friday prayers in the Kuwaiti capital, security officials and witnesses say. The scale of the attack is not yet known, though a number of fatalities has been reported. The blast hit the Imam Sadiq Mosque in al-Sawaber – a busy area to the east of Kuwait City. Attacks of this kind are extremely rare in Kuwait. No group has yet said it was behind the blast.  A security official and witnesses said a suicide bomber had carried out the attack. According to Qatari Al-Jazeera TV, at least eight people were killed. Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida said another eight people were wounded. A Kuwaiti MP, who saw the attack, said the mosque was packed with some 2,000 people when there was a loud explosion, Reuters news agency reported. Footage posted online said to be from the scene of the attack showed men, some in blood-splattered clothing, walking around a smoke-filled room with rubble on the floor.

Kuwait Mark History


Daesh claims attack

A Daesh terror group branch that refers to itself as the “Islamic State in the Province of Najd” (central Saudi Arabia) claimed responsibility for the attack on the mosque. Najd Province claimed similar bombings at Shiite mosques in Saudi Arabia in recent weeks.

Attack condemned

The UAE has strongly condemned the mosque attack in Kuwait. Bahraini foreign minister Shaikh Khaled Bin Ahmad also condemned the attack, saying on Twitter that it “is not sectarianism, but a war on Islam and a calculated [attempt at sowing] discord [among Muslims]”.

“The presence of [separate] mosques for Shiites and Sunnis is the bigger innovation. This is sectarianism par excellence,” he tweeted.

Prominent Salafist figure and former member of parliament Walid Tabtabai offered his condolences on Twitter but said that he suspected that Iran was behind the attack. “The attack was the work of the people behind the Al Anood and Al Qadeeh (Shiite mosques in Saudi Arabia), and this party has been infiltrated by Iranian intelligence to create sectarian discord.”


Kuwaiti Shiites make up around one-third of the country’s native population of 1.3 million people. The interior ministry said it launched a full investigation into the incident. Three weeks ago, the ministry said it has raised the level of security around mosques following the bombings in neighbouring Saudi Arabia. The bombing was strongly condemned by political groups, organisations and lawmakers. The mainstream Sunni group, the Islamic Constitutional Movement condemned what it called “the low criminal attack targeting the (Shiite) mosque.”

Kuwait’s leading Sunni cleric, Sheikh Ajeel al-Nashmi, said on Twitter that the bombing is a “criminal act aimed at sowing seeds of discord, and undoubtedly Shiites and Sunnis will foil the terrorists’ plot.” Independent MP Sultan Al-Shemmari called on the government to “hit with an iron fist” against the “terrorists.” In the past few weeks, Kuwaiti courts have tried a number of people on charges of being Daesh members and sentenced at least one of them to several years in jail.

Emir visits mosque

Kuwait’s emir, Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, immediately visited the site, and footage on state-run Kuwait Television showed him visibly moved by the scenes of carnage. The television showed footage of massive destruction caused by the blast, and people posted online horrific pictures of the dead and wounded. The Kuwaiti cabinet went into an emergency meeting to discuss the incident, as the interior ministry raised the level of alert and mobilised all security forces.
