The criminal court adjourned to next Thursday the trial proceeding of 29 defendants on charges of being linked to the Imam Al-Sadiq Mosque's blast. The attack, which occurred in Kuwait City on June 26, left 26 people killed and 227 others injured. On July 14, the public prosecution referred the defendants to the criminal court for trial.
Seven Kuwaitis, five Saudis, three Pakistanis, 13 illegal residents, and a fugitive defendant, whose nationality has not been yet disclosed, were accused of targeting the mosque. The charges against the defendants include use of explosives, incitement to commit crime, and affiliation to a banned group that adopts extremist views which contradicts the state's policies.
