A ceiling of a mosque had partially collapsed in Kuwait, causing no casualties among worshippers, local media reported.

#Kuwait seizes over 14,000 alcohol bottles
Market value of the haul is estimated at KD1m
Kuwait’s customs officials said they had foiled an attempt to smuggle 14,720 alcohol bottles into the country ahead of the Eid Al Fitr celebrations.
The haul was seized in a container of household items coming from an unspecified Gulf country at the Kuwaiti Al Shuwaikh port, the Kuwaiti Customs said on its Twitter.
The market value of the seized contraband is estimated at KD1 million, said Al Anba newspaper that described the foiling of the attempt as a blow to mafia and dealers in alcohol ahead of the Eid holiday.
The haul was seized after customs officers had suspected the container and employed sophisticated search equipment that emitted signals, prompting officers to thoroughly examine the contents of the shipment, the paper added.
Kuwaiti authorities have in recent months announced several arrests and hauls in a crackdown on illegal alcohol plants in the country.


New direct flights to Kuwait will be launched next month from Manchester Airport. Nearly 50,000 passengers from across the north who currently fly indirectly to the Middle Eastern destination are expected to use the new route in its first year.
