Explosive belt maker arrested in Saudi Arabia

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 7: The security authorities in Saudi Arabia have arrested the man who had reportedly prepared the explosives belt which was used by the suicide bomber to bomb the Al-Sadiq Mosque in downtown Kuwait City in June 2015, reports Al-Shahed daily.

The suspect, identified only as A.Z, was taken into custody by the Saudi authorities for his involvement in terrorist acts in Kuwait. It has been reported, his name was mentioned several times by the suspects who were rounded up and interrogated in the aftermath of the mosque bombing in Kuwait.

The sources added the Saudi authorities began looking but he was always on the move which made it difficult for the Saudi security authorities to arrest him. The suspect was arrested at a police checkpoint in Saudi Arabia. He reportedly reversed his vehicle and attempted to escape, but was caught before he could make the next move.

Another man, whose identity has not been disclosed, and who was wanted by the Saudi authorities, has also been taken into custody. The sources said the Kuwaiti and Saudi authorities extradite suspects wanted by law in their respective countries. Meanwhile, police have paid no attention to a call made by a Kuwaiti to the Operations Room of the Ministry of Interior, reports Al-Anba daily. The daily said the caller said he received an SMS from an unidentified source that his daughter is planning to marry a DAESH terrorist and that she is waiting to see his picture which is expected to be sent on WhatsApp.

112 no response?: The General Department of Public Relations and Media Security at the Interior Ministry said the Interior Ministry has taken legal action against one of the female employees attending the emergency hotline (112) for not responding to a call made by a Kuwaiti, reports Al-Shahed daily. According to the daily, the Kuwaiti saw some Asians performing a strange ritual on a beach in Fintas. When the call was made, the operator did not respond when another call was placed, sometime later, a police patrol was dispatched and the suspects were arrested. It has been reported, the video clip of the Asians performing a ritual went viral on social networking and the employee will be dealt with for derelict of duty.
