Kuwait named a new information minister, two months after his predecessor quit as he was about to be questioned in parliament over allowing "immoral" Western-style concerts in the country. Amir Shaikh Jaber Al Ahmad Al Sabah appointed Anas Mohammad Ahmad Al Reshaid to the post, the state news agency Kuna said. Former minister Mohammad Abulhasan resigned in January before he was due to be questioned by Islamist MPs over several allegations, including approving music concerts in the state which were seen by Islamists as violating sharia law. The labour and social affairs minister had been running the information ministry since Abulhasan’s resignation.
