Kuwait orders 2 newspapers shut over coup articles

Published: 04.20.14, 19:37 / Israel News

Kuwait's state news agency says the government has temporarily suspended the publication of two independent newspapers over articles about a secret probe into allegations of a coup plot to overthrow the Gulf monarchy's government.


KUNA carried a statement Sunday by the Information Ministry saying Al Watan and Alam Al Yawm newspapers had violated a prosecutor-ordered media blackout of the investigation.


The ministry says a judge ordered the newspapers to stop printing for two weeks after they published information about the investigation he said could harm the public's interest. (AP)
