Kuwaiti MPs Brawl over Gitmo Inmates

Chaos erupted after MP Hussein al-Kallaf condemned the Guantanamo inmates as "al-Qaeda" militants.

Six lawmakers are reported to have been involved in the fistfight, which prompted acting speaker MP Abdullah al-Rumi to adjourn the session that was being watched by a delegation of US lawyers representing the Guantanamo inmates.

Currently, two Kuwaiti nationals are being held in the US prison camp in Cuba, and Washington has rejected all appeals from Kuwait to release them. Ten Kuwaitis have already been released from Guantanamo.

According to WikiLeaks, Kuwait's interior minister told the American ambassador in 2009 that he did not want to see the detainees return to Kuwait and suggested "the best thing to do is to get rid of them."

The Persian Gulf country's foreign minister, however, has rejected the report, insisting that "it is impossible to think that Kuwait will ever forget about its sons ... detained in Guantanamo without trial."
