Kuwait arrest 14 suspects after police shooting

KUWAIT CITY – Fourteen suspects have been arrested in connection with an attack on a police patrol during a wedding party in western Kuwait City, the Interior Ministry said Friday.

In a statement, the ministry said that 11 stateless people, two Arabs and one Kuwaiti national were arrested for involvement in the Thursday attack.

Four vehicles used in the attack, along with a cache of weapons, were also seized by police, according to the ministry statement.

The policemen had gone to the wedding party to demand that guests refrain from firing guns into the air during celebrations.

Shooting live rounds into the air is a common practice at wedding parties across the Arab world.
