Heard the early reports on this one on NPR -- just now saw the report that a policeman was the one doing the shooting. Scary stuff. My son's sub
was in that area a few weeks ago (and they were on a brief shore leave.)

KUWAIT (Reuters) - A Kuwaiti policeman shot and seriously wounded two U.S. soldiers on Thursday, the Kuwaiti government said, in the latest in a
series of shootings targeting U.S. troops training in the country.
The interior ministry said in a statement that the attacker was a junior policeman who fled across the border to Saudi Arabia after shooting the
"The culprit of this criminal act fled to...Saudi Arabia and coordination is under way with security authorities in the kingdom to arrest and hand
him over," the statement said.
A U.S. military spokesman said the two soldiers were shot around 10:30 a.m. (0730 GMT) while traveling between the Camp Doha military base on the
northern outskirts of Kuwait City and Arifjan, 35 miles to the south of the capital.
