DUBAI - Kuwait has identified the suicide bomber who carried out the country's worst attack as a Saudi citizen, Kuwait state media reported on Sunday.

The interior ministry named the bomber as Fahd Suliman Abdul-Muhsen al-Qabaa and said he flew into Kuwait's airport at dawn on Friday, only hours before he detonated explosives at a Shi'ite Muslim mosque killing at least 27 people.
