A 32-year-old man committed a suicide by shooting himself with the famous Russian-made assault rifle Kalashnikov at a rest house in Kuwait.

The man, a bedoun (without identity), phoned his family telling them he would kill himself before using his mobile phone to record his voice.

“Police found in his mobile phone a recorded video revealing the reasons that pushed him to end his life. He also asked his family to forgive him,” 'Al Watan' daily said.

It quoted a police source as saying the man apparently fired three shots at himself following a rift with his family.
