Kuwaiti woman arrested over hoax bomb threat
A divorced Kuwaiti woman was arrested today after threatening to “blow herself off”.
The 46-year-old woman stood near Kuwait Bourse holding a banner on which she wrote: “Keep off or I will blow you off with me”.
A security source told Al Qabas that the woman was facing psychological problems due to her divorce and disputes with her family, who threw her out of the house.
Landlords have reportedly refused to rent her a flat where she could stay.
The police referred her to the state security directorate over the hoax bomb threat to face legal action. The police searched her meticulously and found no explosives on her.
A video showing the woman in front of Kuwait Bourse was posted on social media.
