An American soldier is being held as a suspect in an attack in Kuwait that wounded 13 of his comrades in the 101st Airborne Division, the US military said on Saturday.

"A suspect was taken into custody following the attack on elements of the 101st Airborne Division. The suspect is a soldier assigned to the division," said a statement from US Central Command, which is running the war on Iraq.

Two of the injured were treated on the scene and released. Helicopters evacuated the other 11 to Army combat support hospitals in the region, the statement said.

None of the soldiers were identified.
