Kuwait police fire tear gas to disperse protesters

Kuwaiti security forces arrive at the scene as tires are burning during a demonstration of supporters of Kuwaiti opposition leader and former MP Mussallam al-Barrak to ask for his release on July 6, 2014 in Kuwait CityKuwait riot police on Sunday fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse hundreds of opposition protesters who were demanding the release of a detained opposition leader. Witnesses said riot police armed in armoured vehicles fired tear gas and stun grenades at the protesters as soon as they marched toward a courts complex in the capital Kuwait City, forcing them to flee. Police also chased them into narrow streets of Kuwait City markets to ensure they do not reach the courts complex, where opposition leader Mussallam al-Barrak is scheduled to face trial on Monday. The protesters, a number of whom were treated for inhaling gas, had earlier rejected appeals by police officers not to march.
