The Kuwaiti National Assembly will vote on a proposed media law already approved by the Cabinet of the Arabian Peninsula nation today.

KUNA (Kuwait News Agency) reported that the proposed measure largely eliminates jail time for offending journalists (unless they denigrate Allah) and instead, imposes fines. Sheikh Salman, the constitutional emirate's Minister of Information, said: "The bill will regulate work of all press and media outlets, and it aims to strengthen press and media freedoms."
