Two held for possession of unlicensed weapons

KUWAIT: Two citizens were arrested by weapons detectives for possessing unlicensed weapons. Tips were received about a suspect having unlicensed firearms, so a warrant was obtained and his house was raided, where a large amount of ammunition was found. They then went to the second suspect’s house, where they found two AK-47s and a pistol. Both were sent to concerned authorities, the Ministry of Interior’s relations and security information department said in a statement.

An evacuation exercise was held at a surgical ward at Sabah Hospital by the medical emergencies department in cooperation with Sabah and Amiri hospitals’ administrations. The exercise simulated leaking water, so power was cut off and patients removed from the ward. Six patients were taken to the emergency surgery department of the same hospital, while four others were taken to Amiri Hospital, according to the plan. Meanwhile, the civil defense department carried out a mock evacuation exercise at Regency Hotel. The department’s acting director Col Jamal Al-Foudary held a meeting in the presence of participants to discuss the outcome of the exercise.
