KUWAIT: Two children were killed and nine others were injured in a collision along Wafra farms road, Kuwait Fire Service Directorate’s public relations and media department said in a statement. Firefighters responded to a report Thursday night about a collision between a water tanker and sedan carrying a family.

Sources said five children were immediately rushed to hospital with serious injuries, where two of them died, while the others are undergoing medical treatment. An investigation was opened to determine the circumstances behind the accident.

Smuggling foiled

Customs inspectors at Kuwait International Airport discovered large amounts of drugs smuggled in a food supplement shipment arriving as a cargo from a European country. Security sources said the recipient did not show up to collect the shipment, so the drugs were confiscated pending further investigations.
