KUWAIT CITY: Kuwait’s emir consulted his crown prince and prime minister after four nights of clashes over the arrest of a prominent opposition leader ahead of a mass rally later Sunday.

“The prime minister briefed the emir and the crown prince of the events that violate the constitution and the law,” said an official statement cited by the KUNA.

Police have used tear gas and stun grenades against demonstrators, and the Interior Ministry has vowed to deal firmly with unlicensed gatherings.

A ministry statement blamed demonstrators for the violence, charging that unidentified men threw a petrol bomb at the jail where opposition leader Mussalam Al-Barrak has been held for the past five days.
