The kidnapped Emir’s cabinet member who pleaded for anonymity, confirmed on Sunday that the attack occurred around 12:30 a.m.
“Just a day before the incident, the Emir had summoned a security meeting to alert us about a potential ploy to kidnap him but unfortunately, the security agents didn’t take any action,” the cabinet member said.
