A Kuwaiti man suspected to be a member of the Islamic State group was Friday deported by the Philippines to face charges at home, a justice department official said.

Hussein Al-Dhufairi, one of the two suspected IS members arrested in the Philippines last month, was flown out of the country to Kuwait, undersecretary Erickson Balmes said. A statement from the Kuwaiti embassy said Dhufairi was due to be tried in his home country.

“Evidence obtained by Kuwait’s state security agencies also showed that he is planning to carry out terroristic attacks in the State of Kuwait,” the statement said.

Dhufairi was arrested along with a Syrian woman Rahaf Zina, also named as a member of the jihadist group.

Zina and Dhufairi married after her high-ranking IS commander husband was killed in Syria, said Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre. He earlier said the pair had entered the country as part of plans for “a bombing operation” in the Philippines or Kuwait.
