June 27, 2015, 12:59 pm

A plane travelling from New York to Kuwait City has declared a state of emergency and has diverted to Heathrow, it was reported in the Telegraph. The reason behind the diversion is currently unclear, although there were reports six passengers had come down with food poisoning.

It comes a day after a suicide bomber blew himself up during prayers at a Shiite mosque in the Kuwaiti capital, killing 27 people. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.
