Kuwait deports Jordanian over protest


United Arab Emirates— Authorities in Kuwait deported a Kuwaiti-born, Jordanian national for joining an unauthorized protest, an official said Monday, the latest case to spark outrage over the treatment of foreign workers in the Gulf Arab country.

Police arrested the Jordanian man at a protest last week in Kuwait City against the government’s new restrictions on unvaccinated people.

Asked on live TV about the demonstration, the man vented his anger over Kuwait’s decision to ban the unvaccinated from public places, including restaurants and malls. The television clip ricocheted across social media, racking up thousands of views.
