Seven to die over Kuwait mosque attack
Kuwait has sentenced seven people to death over the suicide bombing of a Shia mosque in which at least 27 people were killed.
More than 220 people were wounded in the 26 June attack, which targeted the Imam Sadiq Mosque in a busy area to the east of Kuwait City.
Another eight suspects were given terms of between two and 15 years in jail while 14 others were acquitted.
A group affiliated with Islamic State (IS) said it was behind the attack.
Tunisia and France saw attacks on the same day, although no definite link between them has been established.
The attacks came in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, when IS had urged its followers to mount attacks.
IS regards Shia Muslims as heretics and says it was behind the attack.
The organisation has carried out similar recent attacks in neighbouring Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
Kuwait says the man who carried out the bombing was a Saudi citizen named Fahd Suleiman Abdulmohsen al-Qaba'a.
