A man who claimed he had a bomb and briefly held three Jewish teenagers captive in a Warsaw hotel is the son of the Kuwaiti ambassador to Poland, Polish police said Tuesday.
National police spokesman Mariusz Sokolowski said the 23-year-old Kuwaiti suspect identified as Mohammad A. "is the son of the Kuwaiti ambassador." Sokolowski said the man was too drunk to undergo questioning Monday.
Police said the suspect pulled three Brazilians into their room of Warsaw's Holiday Inn after 9 a.m. on Monday. Police say no explosives were found.
Police stormed the room just before 10 a.m. and took Mohammad A. into custody without incident. None of the captives were harmed.
The Kuwaiti Embassy could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
