Kuwait: A couple in Al-Qairawan approached local police on Sunday to report that their teenage daughter was kidnapped by her uncle, but investigations later revealed that the man had actually stepped in to save his niece from his sister and her husband who beat her up. The uncle had escorted the 13-year-old to the Qairawan police station after officers summoned him for investigations in a case filed by the girl’s parents moments earlier. The man said during questioning that he had to break into his sister’s house in order to free his niece who called him crying and complained that she was being beaten. The parents eventually confirmed the uncle’s story and later dropped the charges.
