Kuwait protesters defy government ban

Published: 01.06.13, 20:34 / Israel News

Riot police in Kuwait have fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse more than 1,000 anti-government protesters, defying strict rules limiting political demonstrations in the Gulf nation which requires rallies to receive written permission.


Opposition groups have accused Kuwait's ruler of overstepping powers by changing voting rules that favor government critics, which span from Islamist factions and pro-reform liberals. They now seek to bring down the new parliament dominated by pro-government lawmakers. Kuwaiti rights activist Mohammed Al-Humaidi said that several protesters were arrested, however no injuries were reported. (AP)
