KUWAIT CITY, Dec 17: An Egyptian muezzin and a Lebanese Imam, who are neighbors, were arrested for fighting with each other over some personal disputes. In a press release issued by Ministry of Interior, the General Department for Public Relations and Security Media stated that a quarrel broke between the muezzin and the imam who are both staying in a building that belongs to Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs.

The department explained that the two parties accused each other. The imam claimed that the muezzin broke into his house along with some people who were carrying metal objects. They then beat him and his sons, resulting in injuries.
