May 13, 2017, 4:08 pm

A security officer from the airplane protection department at Kuwait's Special Force shot himself dead "by accident" while examining his weapon, the Interior Ministry said on Saturday. Officers were receiving weapons at the department's weapon room ahead of a mission, when a chief warrant officer (CWO) started examining his own, but unluckily he shot himself dead by mistake, the ministry added. Another was injured and hurried to hospital.

Initial investigations in the "regrettable accident" showed that the bullet was shot from the CWO's weapon. They will continue to determine the full circumstances. The ministry expressed condolences to the family of the deceased and wished the injured one speedy recovery.
