Kuwaiti security forces stormed a building in the capital's Salmiyah neighborhood and exchanged gunfire with a group of "suspected terrorists", state television reported Sunday.
The clash was the third battle this month between security forces and suspected "militants". One suspect was arrested in the operation, according to state-owned Kuwaiti Television. Three suspected "militants", a Kuwait security officer and a Bahraini man who lived in the building where the attack took place were killed, according to the report. The man was a bystander.
The clash took place in Kuwait City's Salmiyah neighborhood, where many foreign residents live. Residents heard gunfire for several minutes and saw police cordon off the area. The report added the clash had ended but that police were still combing the residential neighborhood for suspects.
