Until confirmed by government take everything you read with a grain of salt

RETRACTION

On Saturday, November 20, 2010 the Kuwait Times published an article titled 'Multi ministry camera ban frustrates artists' in which incorrect information was provided. The newspaper regrets failing to verify the information. The article wrongly stated that a ban on DSLR cameras was implemented by the Ministries of Information, Social Affairs and Finance. This information is false. In a follow up investigation, it was proved that no such ban has been issued. We regret this error and deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused.

So all the ranting and raving was the result of a false report?

Gotta love the internet...

It's doubtful that it was a false report. This was covered by the Kuwait media (written and TV) and the ban was issued by three ministries at the same time. Consideration has to be given to the week long dithering before this was denied/retracted, again a hallmark of inter ministry incompetence.

Kuwait had a similar incident about 18 months ago where Youtube was briefly censored by ISPs on ministry orders, first officially, then unofficially, then there had never been a ban.

False report. "April fools suckas" is what they are saying at Kuwait times.
