Thousands of people in Kuwait have taken part in a mass funeral procession for 27 people killed in a suicide bombing that targeted a Shia mosque on Friday.

A day of mourning was declared in Kuwait on Saturday following the attack on the Imam Sadiq mosque in the district of Sawaber, in the eastern part of Kuwait City.

Police said they were questioning a number of suspects with possible

links to the suicide bombing.

The owner of the car that drove the bomber has been arrested and a

search is under way for the driver, Kuwait’s state news agency reported on Saturday.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group claimed responsibility for the bombing, which was Kuwait’s worst attack in years and the first on a Shia mosque.
