Cairo: Kuwaiti police arrested a citizen who had stabbed and injured three Bangladeshi expatriates following a quarrel, a local newspaper has reported.
The attacker appeared abnormal as he stabbed the three inside an apartment block in the area of Abu Halifa in south Kuwait, added Al Rai newspaper.
Alerted about the incident, police went to the building, where the four are residing. The Kuwaiti man stabbed the three, inflicting minor wounds on them, the paper said.
