Kuwait Identifies Mosque Bomber as Saudi Citizen

Kuwait officials said on Sunday that they had identified the Saudi suicide bomber who launched the worst extremist attack the country has seen, NBC News reported. The country's interior ministry named the bomber as Fahd Suliman Abdul-Muhsen al-Qabaa, and said he had flown into Kuwait's airport on Friday only hours before he detonated explosives at a Shiite mosque in the country's capital city. The ministry also said it had detained the driver of the vehicle that took the bomber to the bomber to the Imam al-Sadeq mosque, a 26-year-old illegal resident named Abdul-Rahman Sabah Aidan. "Initial investigations showed that the owner of the house is a supporter of the deviant ideology," the ministry said, employing a term often used by authorities in the Gulf Arab region to refer to hardline Islamist militants.
