Six police officers were injured during a fight with prisoners in Kuwait’s Central Jail on Thursday night.

Four inmates - a Saudi and three stateless residents - are accused of using “sharp edged objects” to attack the officers during a surprise raid on a cell.

A police statement said the officers entered the cell after receiving information that the prisoners had banned goods including a mobile phone and SIM cards.

A lieutenant colonel and a first lieutenant were wounded in the incident, the statement says.

Police managed to overpower the inmates and seize the contrabands.
