      A brash Kuwaiti financier facing a fraud suit by US authorities was found dead on Sunday in an apparent suicide that has sent shockwaves through the Gulf Arab financial sector.

      A security source told Reuters that Hazem Al-Braikan appeared to have died from a single gunshot wound to the side of the head, while a policeman standing outside Braikan's house said the well-connected financier, 37, had shot himself.

      The source told Reuters the Ministry of Interior's operations centre received a call about a shooting and found a dead man at the scene, whom they identified as Hazem Khaled Al-Braikan. A second source confirmed the death to Reuters.

      Al-Braikan was the CEO of Al Raya Investment, which is 10 percent owned by Citigroup Inc.
