More protests in Kuwait over voting laws

Protest marches have increased in frequency lately since the political opposition boycotted a parliamentary election on December 1st over changes to voting laws that allegedly favoured pro-government candidates. Over the weekend, security forces had to use stun grenades to disperse hundreds of opposition activists trying to stage a march as part of a series of protests against what they see as a rubber-stamp parliament. Travellers should always exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without prior notice.
