Al Jazeera targeted in Kuwait

14 December 2010, Index on Censorship report that Al Jazeera's Kuwait city office was closed due to footage by the channel of police brutality against members of the Kuwaiti opposition.

Amongst the footage shown was police beating activists, and the airing of interviews with members of the Kuwaiti opposition. Four Kuwaiti members of parliament and a dozen citizens were injured in the incident. The official reason given for the closure of Al Jazeera was “the latest developments and your interference in Kuwait’s internal affairs”.
