"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Kuwait has only managed to find and identify three of the 605 still missing from the Iraqi invasion in 1991.

Saleh Ali Saud al-Hayani’s remains were found in a mass grave in Samawa, 200 kilometres (120 miles) south of Baghdad, the English-language Arab Times said, quoting a statement from Fayez al-Anzi, spokesman for a Kuwaiti team charged with searching for Kuwaiti prisoners in Iraq.

“Laboratory tests on the DNA of one of the remains found in the mass grave matched with Hayani’s DNA fingerprints,” Anzi said.

Hayani, born in 1965, worked at the emirate’s health ministry when he was taken prisoner during Iraq’s seven-month occupation of Kuwait, Anzi said.

Hayani is the third Kuwaiti prisoner whose remains were found in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime some three months ago following the invasion of Iraq by US-led forces. Last month, the remains of Saad Meshal Aswad al-Enezi and Ahmed AbdulRassoul al-Qallaf were also discovered in mass graves in Iraq.
