Drunken driver causes scare at British embassy in Kuwait
Armed security guards at the British embassy in the emirate of Kuwait sounded the alarm after a motorist crashed his car into a protective metal barrier set up outside the embassy, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
"A Gulf citizen, identified only as N.M., has been referred to authorities for crashing into the embassy barriers" on Monday, al-Siyassa said. Embassy security guards had to point their guns at the man to prevent him from leaving the area, the daily said.
He was later found to have been drunk, it added. "There was a minor traffic incident near the embassy," an embassy spokesperson told AFP Tuesday. (Albawaba.com)
