US Embassy says American citizen stabbed in Kuwait :
  • Kuwait News

The U.S. Embassy in Kuwait says a U.S. citizen has been stabbed, and that the man who assaulted him is in police custody.


The Embassy’s security message for U.S. citizens said Thursday the victim’s injuries are not life-threatening and that the embassy is not aware of any specific or credible threats against Americans in Kuwait.

The advisory cautioned that extremists may attack in groups or alone and advised U.S. citizens to exercise caution in areas frequented by Westerners. No details were released regarding the identity of the attacker.

Though terrorist attacks are rare in Kuwait, an Islamic State group affiliate detonated a suicide bomb in the capital in June of last year, killing at least 27 people and wounding scores at a mosque packed with Shiite worshippers.
