Kuwait arrests two illegal residents for online rumor-mongering

— Kuwait has arrested a pair of illegal residents for spreading online rumors that “undermine national unity,” the interior ministry said on Tuesday.

The suspects, through fake (social media) accounts, were also posting content that defames and instigates bullying to personalities, the ministry said in a statement, adding that criminal surveillance led to their arrests.

A trove of screen apparatuses, computers and portable hard drives were found in their possession, the ministry said, while legal action will be launched against them.
