Kuwait frees Iranians: envoy

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 11: The Iranian Ambassador to Kuwait Dr Ali Reza Enayati has announced that the Kuwaiti security authorities have released the two Iranians who had been arrested last Thursday for taking pictures of a Husseiniya in Hawally and two other sites, reports Al-Rai daily. The ambassador said the Iranian embassy in Kuwait had tasked its consular section to follow the case soon after the news about their arrest was published to find out the details of the case, until their release yesterday. Enayati has praised the high level of cooperation between the Kuwaiti authorities and the embassy. Meanwhile, the Al-Anba daily said both Iranians have valid residence permit in Kuwait and they had returned for work after spending holidays in Iran. The source added the issue was blown out of proportion by the media.

Kuwaiti assaulted: A Kuwaiti who is believed to be in his 50s has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Jahra Hospital, reports Al-Rai daily. He was reportedly beaten mercilessly by another Kuwaiti family after he mistakenly entered their house carrying fish in hand. A security source said the family will be held legally responsible, regardless of the cause of entry in the house because according to the law, the owner cannot take the law in his hands and should have called the Operations Room of the Ministry of Interior.

Debt not paid: Police have arrested a Kuwaiti who is believed to be in his 40s for failing to pay debt, reports Al-Rai daily. The daily added the man was picked up on suspicion because he was seen walking alone along a road in Sharq past midnight. When he was asked for his ID he claimed to have forgotten it at home. On checking records, police found the man was wanted by law in 20 cases of avoiding to pay debt. He has been handed over to the Sentences Enforcement Department.

Illegal Indian held: Police have arrested an Indian for violating residence law, reports Al-Rai daily. The Indian was caught in Salmiya. The Indian was reportedly staying in the country illegally for the past six months. He is also wanted by law in connection with a forgery.
