Kuwaiti officer assaulted by 20 men
More than 20 men assaulted a Kuwaiti traffic officer and beat him up before stealing his gun and radio after he tried to stop a noisy wedding motorcade in the Gulf emirate.
The officer was on a routine patrol when he saw the honking cars blocking the way and men dancing on the road.
“When he tried to stop them, more than 20 men attacked him…they hit him and stole his radio and gun, which they used to fire in the air for the wedding,” Al Watan daily said, adding that the men fled the area while the cop was rushed to hospital with injuries.
