Man arrested over profane online videos

KUWAIT: Local authorities arrested a man known for his profanity-filled online videos as he flew into the country from London.

The Interior Ministry on Thursday night announced the arrest of Salem Abdullah Ishtail Al-Doussari, a Kuwaiti in his early 40s. In a statement carried by the state-run Kuwait News Agency, the Interior Ministry accused Doussari of making “vulgar remarks” against HH the Amir and regional leaders, as well as “slurs targeting a religious sect”.

It wasn’t immediately clear yesterday if Doussari had a lawyer. He had come to the attention of Kuwaitis via Snapchat, a mobilemessaging application. — Agenc
