KUWAIT CITY (AFP) - Kuwait's public prosecutor has ordered a Sunni tweeter to be detained for 21 days pending investigation on charges of allegedly insulting the faith of the Shi'ite minority, his lawyer said on Monday. Mohammad al-Mulaifi was summoned by the Kuwaiti secret service on Feb 11 after he wrote an article on his Twitter account that contained material deemed offensive to Shi'ites, Mr Yacoub Bahbood told AFP.
