Kuwait's minority Shiites on edge amid Iran-Saudi row

In Kuwait, Shiites make up around a third of the population. The current diplomatic crisis between Iran, a major Shiite power and Saudi Arabia, the Sunni leader in the region, is a source of concern for them. They were already targeted by the bombing of a Shiite mosque by the Islamic State group in June. The minority now fears being exposed to even more violence.
