Filipina maid ready to carry out any terrorist attack

Kuwaiti security forces have captured a Filipina for pledging allegiance to so-called Daesh and who confessed she wanted to carry out a terrorist act if she could, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said on Friday.

According to Kuwait News Agency, Kuna, the MoI said in a statement that security authorities monitored one of the email accounts run by the Filipina, who entered Kuwait last June as a housemaid.

In this email, it added, the arrested woman, who was born in 1984, contacted Daesh in Libya and was using a fake name and a nick-name to evade monitoring.

The ministry said she confessed she was ready to carry out any terrorist attack once circumstances were ripe and means were available, to undermine security and stability in Kuwait, as well as igniting sedition.
