Peaceful anti-government protest in Kuwait

A peaceful antigovernment protest was orchestrated by Nahj, an umbrella group of Islamist and independent opposition and youth activists who were protesting the selection of the prime minister from the ruling al-Sabah family. Some of the protesters remained in the area in defiance of a ban on sit ins. Travellers should exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without notice.
