KUWAIT (Reuters) - Debris lay scattered around a Kuwait City shopping mall on Saturday, Reuters correspondents at the scene said, after a blast that witnesses said was caused by a missile that landed nearby.

Reuters correspondent William Maclean said the Al-Sharqiah cinema, which was part of the seafront mall in the Souq Sharq district, showed signs of damage to its frontage and roofing but it was unclear whether it had been struck by a missile.

There was a smell of smoke in the area.

A policeman at the scene told Reuters he had seen a missile land in the sea. Other witnesses said the missile appeared to fly in over the sea from the direction of Iraq's Faw peninsula.

Several missiles have been launched at Kuwait from Iraq since the U.S. -led war against Iraq began. Kuwaiti officials say previous missiles launched at Kuwait have all been shot down by Patriot batteries or landed harmlessly in unpopulated areas.
