Court upholds death sentence in Kuwait Shia mosque bombing

 

Kuwait's appeals court upheld the death penalty for the main organizer of the bombing of Imam Sadiq Shia mosque claimed by ISIS terrorist group that killed 26 people.

The court however reduced the death sentence handed out to the alleged leader of ISIS in Kuwait, Fahad FarrajMuhareb, to 15 years in prison.

A lower court in September issued the death penalty to Muhareb and Abdulrahman Sabah Saud, who drove the suicide bomber to the mosque site on June 26.

It also handed out jail terms of between two and 15 years to eight others, including five women, and acquitted 14 others.
