Iraqi killer of Kuwaiti coast guard gets reduced term

Kuwaiti riot police take position northwest of Kuwait City, on December 16, 2011Kuwait’s appeals court Monday commuted the death sentence of an Iraqi fisherman who killed a coast guard to life imprisonment, according to the court verdict. Taha Mahmud Sabhan was handed the death sentence by the lower court in November 2012 for killing a Kuwaiti coast guard in a shootout in January last year. The shooting took place after an Iraqi fishing boat with Sabhan and seven others aboard crossed into Kuwaiti waters and refused to stop, according to Kuwait’s interior ministry. But the appeals court on Monday commuted all the life terms to three years in jail and upheld the other sentences.
