'Toy in toilet' sparks Kuwait security alert
Kuwaiti police, civil defence and explosive experts rushed to a public toilet after receiving a call that a toy inside the place could explode at any time.
The unknown caller said the toy was loaded with explosives and was placed on the toilet in the pubic bathroom near a bank in a busy area in the capital Kuwait City.
“Police cordoned off the area while explosive experts carefully examined the toy. They found no explosives in it and it turned out to be a hoax,” 'Al Watan' daily said.
Kuwait last week reported it had arrested a group planning terror attacks following a deadly bombing of a mosque in the capital in June.
