Kuwait bans photography, pictures only to be taken by journalists

21 Nov

Late last night I found this article, I’m not sure how credible it is since it’s the LA Times but…they are reporting that in Kuwait, the government has announced plans to privatize phone and mail services while at the same time increasing censorship. It has begun shutting down all pornographic websites, and on Saturday, three ministries issued a joint ban on photography cameras with large lenses in public places.

It seems they got their info from here.

This is sad and very disappointing for all of us.

What I don’t understand is, why are we allowed to use mobile phones? They do the same thing. We can all take pictures with those?
