Bomber raised no red flags

Los Angeles Times - - THE WORLD -

The Saudi man who blew him­self up in a Shi­ite mosque in Kuwait man­aged to slip out of his home coun­try with­out rais­ing any red f lags and board a com­mer­cial f light tran­sit­ing nearby Bahrain less than 24 hours be­fore the deadly at­tack.

The de­tails of the bomber’s f inal hours, re­leased by re­gional author­i­ties, high­light the grow­ing in­volve­ment of un­de­tected Is­lamic State sym­pa­thiz­ers on the Ara­bian Penin­sula and the threat they pose.

Fri­day’s blast in one of Kuwait City’s most prom­i­nent Shi­ite mosques killed 27 wor­shipers and in­jured more than 200.
