Bahrain Mirror (Exclusive): The Saudi Ministry of Interior identified on Sunday the suicide bomber behind the deadly attack on the Shiite Imam Sadiq Mosque in Kuwait as Saudi citizen Fahad bin Suleiman Al-Gabbaa (23 years old). The interior ministry said the bomber had no criminal record and that "the security agencies have never dealt with him in the past for terror-related activities."

"Fahd Al-Gabbaa left the Kingdom on Thursday, Ramadan 8, from Riyadh to Manama on Gulf Air flight number 170," stated the interior ministry adding that "contact has been made with Bahrain to find out if there is more information on what Al-Gabbaa had done while he was in Manama," noting that there was no record of him traveling in the past.

According to the Bahraini Ministry of Interior, Al-Gabbaa had arrived at Bahrain International Airport from Riyadh on June 25, 2015 at 22:40 and left for Kuwait on the Gulf Air flight 211 at 1:10 Friday morning June 26, 2015.

The Saudi Interior ministry further stated that there was cooperation with Kuwait to determine the dimensions of the crime, including whether other Saudi nationals were involved in the terrorist bomb blast.
