Airport security boosted; Air guns banned at markets

KUWAIT: The Interior Ministry has launched plans to beef up security at Kuwait International Airport, as it opened more than 32 passenger counters.

It also sped up inspection mechanisms by increasing the luggage search process from 1,500 to 2,000 bags an hour; searched through 13 new devices that entered services last Sunday. — Al-Rai

Air guns banned at markets: The interior and commerce ministries agreed to ban the sale of air guns in supermarkets and co-op societies, and instead limiting their sale to 15 licensed gun shops in Kuwait.

The decision came during a recent meeting that the two ministries held to discuss the gun’s threat since its shots can be fatal if fired from close range. Air guns are often imported and used in Kuwait by bird hunters. — Al-Rai
