Footage has emerged reportedly showing the moment a suicide bomber entered a Shia mosque in Kuwait, killing himself and at least 24 others.

At least 50 people were injured in Friday's attack on the al-Imam al-Sadeq mosque in the centre of Kuwait City, which has since been claimed by the Islamic State group.

Images from security cameras at the mosque allegedly showed the bomber, Abu Suleiman al-Muwahhad, entering holding an explosive belt under his clothes.
