Kuwait arrests Iranian, Afghan illegal immigrants
Authorities in Kuwait have detained 21 Iranians and Afghans who entered the emirate illegally by sea and are still searching for a boat-load of more "infiltrators", a newspaper reported Saturday.
"Kuwaiti beaches were exposed to an invasion of Iranian and Afghan infiltrators at dawn Friday," Al-Watan said.
The coastguard detected several "targets" in the early hours and on approaching them, arrested 21 Iranians and Afghans on three separate boats all heading for different beaches south of Kuwait City.
Meanwhile, security authorities were on the look out for a fourth boat suspected of carrying more men, the daily said. (Albawaba.com)
