A Kuwaiti Sunni Muslim who converted to Shiite (Shia) murdered two friends after they scoffed at him for his decision.

The court sentenced him to death on Monday despite a medical report showing the defendant is suffering from schizophrenia and other mental problems.

Police said a hospital report showed the defendant has been treated at the psychological section for nearly 16 years.
