"U.S. Embassy Kuwait confirms that what at first appeared to be a routine traffic accident involving three deployed U.S. military personnel on a Kuwaiti highway on Thursday, October 6, was in fact an attempted terrorist attack. An Egyptian national deliberately rammed a construction vehicle into a passenger vehicle containing the three U.S. personnel. The Egyptian driver was incapacitated by the impact. The three U.S. military personnel, who were uninjured, pulled the driver from his vehicle, which had caught fire. The perpetrator was subsequently hospitalized and is in Kuwaiti custody."
