Saudi brothers arrested over links to Kuwait mosque bombing

Three Saudi brothers have been arrested in connection with the suicide bombing of a Shi’ite mosque in Kuwait last month, the Saudi and Kuwaiti authorities said on Tuesday. The attack during Friday prayers, which killed 27 people including the bomber, appeared aimed at stoking sectarian hatred in the energy-rich Gulf. Islamic State claimed responsibility. The three brothers were “parties to the crime of the sinful terrorist bombing that targeted the Imam al-Sadeq mosque in Kuwait,” the SPA state news agency cited a security spokesman for the Saudi interior ministry as saying.
