(MENAFN - Arab Times) Ministry of Interior has started forming teams of criminal detectives to arrest and take necessary legal action against anyone found in possession of a firearm or any person caught taking photos while holding firearms at weddings or other occasions, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Security sources said the decision is based on the widespread phenomenon of youths and children drawing out firearms and posing with them in private event and ceremonies, indicating countless accidents have been recorded as a result, and so the security agencies will be monitoring people with weapons to arrest and deal with them based on the law.



Sources added that criminal detectives have been roaming Sulaibiya and Taima areas, in an attempt to arrest two individuals involved in the two shooting incidents. They added that detectives have managed to identify the faces of the first two suspects through video clips posted on various social media networking sites.
