Kuwait News

---Certain locations at Kuwait International Airport that were described as ‘off limits’ are being used to dump empty liquor bottles and cans that might be confiscated from passengers, security sources said. They were commenting on news about recent discoveries of empty liquor bottles at ‘hidden’ and ‘remote’ locations inside the airport.

On how the bottles could have accessed a high security place such as the airport, the sources said that they are often confiscated from transit passengers who agree to handover the bottles and board their flights without facing charges. “Confiscated bottles should be handed over to relevant authorities, but some airport personnel keep them for their own use then dump the empty bottles and cans to avoid being discovered,” the sources speculated.

Duh! Everyone knows that confiscated liquor does not make it to the trash!

---The Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources has notified the public about an auction to sell surplus animals at the zoo in Omariya from Sunday, May 10 until Thursday, May 21 from 9 am to 12:30 pm.

So, let's see here, exotic animals are taken from crazy owners and sent to the zoo and now the zoo is selling 'surplus' animals? Who are they selling them to? Sounds like revolving door syndrome.

---Up to 45 patients have been transported to hospitals and clinics by the new airborne transportation service since its launch in January, a Ministry of Health official said on Sunday. The figure of the cases that received the speedy air ambulance service was revealed by Dr. Jamal Al-Harbi, the assistant undersecretary, at inauguration of the fourth international speech festival, sponsored by Minister of Health Dr. Ali Al-Obaidi.

The ministry has prepared specially equipped helicopters to transport patients or people hurt in accidents from the scenes to hospitals or health centers, thus shortening time needed the transfer time needed and evading road traffic.
