Kuwait court sentences seven to death over Shia mosque bombing

 

A court in Kuwait has sentenced seven people to death over a deadly bombing at a Shia mosque in the capital back in June.
Eight defendants were also sentenced to between two and 15 years in jail, the state KUNA news agency reported.
Fourteen other defendants were acquitted.
In July, prosecutors in Kuwait announced that 29 people, including seven Kuwaitis, five Saudis, three Pakistanis, 13 illegal residents and one fugitive with unknown nationalities, had been charged with involvement in the bombing at the Imam Sadiq Mosque.
The attack occurred in al-Sawabir, a busy residential and shopping district of the capital, Kuwait City, on June 26, killing 27 Shia worshipers and injuring nearly 230 others.
The self-proclaimed group Najd Province, which is affiliated with the Takfiri organization ISIS, claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.
