Kuwait's Embassy to France said that a failed robbery attempt on Kuwait health office in Paris was carried out, adding that the amount was restored after police intervention, with no resulting material or bodily harm.

The offender seized the amount after using a spray on the deputy health attache and two employees as they were carrying funds designated for Kuwaiti patients close to the office, before making an escape, revealed an embassy statement.

"The deputy health attache requested help while witnessing a passing policeman, who immediately proceeded to apprehend the assailant and regain the stolen amount - without any material or bodily harm", the embassy added, while denying that the offender was armed or whether there was an exchange of fire.

"The Kuwaiti Embassy in Paris is currently following up on the affair with French authorities in order to find out who was behind the crime," concluded the statement.
