[JURIST] A Kuwaiti court Tuesday sentenced six Islamist militants to death for their involvement in a January 2005 clash with police that left several people dead. All the men were members of the Peninsula Lions Brigades, a fundamentalist group linked to al Qaeda [JURIST news archive] and on the country's terror watch list for plotting to carry out terrorist attacks in Kuwait, supporting suicide bombings abroad, and smuggling arms into the country with the ultimate goal of overthrowing the government. The court also handed down jail terms for twenty-two others, including an Australian Arab. Seven defendants were acquitted. AFP has more.
