Kuwait Twitter 'insult' brings 2-year sentence

Published: 01.06.13, 15:55 / Israel News

Kuwaiti media said a social media activist has been sentenced to two years in prison for a Twitter post deemed insulting to the Gulf nation's ruler.

Authorities across the Western-allied Gulf Arab states have sharply increased crackdowns on perceived dissent among bloggers and others using social media. The sentence passed Sunday in Kuwait is not the harshest in region, but is likely to bring further denunciations from international rights groups. (AP)
