Troops rescue attacker
American troops deployed in Kuwait who were intentionally rammed by an Egyptian man over the weekend pulled their attacker from his burning vehicle after it caught fire, the US Embassy said. The embassy described the incident on a Kuwaiti highway on Saturday that was initially thought to be a traffic accident as “an attempted terrorist attack”. All three uniformed US military personnel in the truck that was struck escaped unharmed, the embassy said. The incapacitated attacker, identified by Kuwaiti authorities as Ibrahim Sulaiman, born in 1988, was hospitalised and is in police custody. The embassy said it is not aware of any “specific, credible threats” against American civilians in Kuwait, but it reminded those in the country to remain vigilant.
