The Kuwaiti Ministry of Interior said in a statement on Friday that it arrested a terrorist cell linked to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group which is wanted by the Egyptian authorities for criminal convictions.

The ministry said that the members of the terrorist cell, who fled Egypt and attempted to use Kuwait as a base for their operations, have been convicted of criminal offenses by the Egyptian judiciary and face prison sentences of up to 15 years in Egypt.

Those arrested admitted to mounting terrorist operations and disrupting security in different areas in Egypt, the Kuwaiti ministry said.

“The Interior Ministry warns it will show no leniency towards anyone proven to have collaborated or been linked to this cell or any terrorist cells or organizations," the ministry added.

It added it would "strike with an iron fist against any attempt to undermine Kuwait's security."
