KUWAIT: The Min­istry of In­te­rior an­nounced yes­ter­day the arrest of an­other con­vict of the ter­ror group known as the “Ab­daly cell” late Satur­day. Mustafa Ab­dulnabi Ali Bader Khan, a Kuwaiti who is sen­tenced to 10 years in jail, was ar­rested as part of the min­istry’s ef­forts in ex­e­cut­ing the rul­ing of the cas­sa­tion court, a min­istry state­ment said. The se­cu­rity bod­ies will con­tinue an in­ten­sive search for the other con­vict still at large, it added.

The min­istry on Satur­day an­nounced the cap­ture of 12 con­victs of the cell, who went miss­ing last month. A min­istry state­ment said the con­victs were ap­pre­hended in dif­fer­ent parts of the coun­try, while a search was on­go­ing for two more in­di­vid­u­als. In Sept 2015, the pub­lic pros­e­cu­tion in­dicted a num­ber of in­di­vid­u­als for acts that threat­ened na­tional se­cu­rity and unity. The de­fen­dants were ac­cused of pro­vid­ing in­tel­li­gence to Iran and Hezbol­lah, as well as hous­ing weapons, am­mu­ni­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vices.
