Troops res­cue at­tacker

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

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.
