Photographers in Kuwait are facing a ban on the use of larger digital cameras in public places, according to a local media report.
Three government ministries in the Gulf state have outlawed the use of “digital SLR” (single lens reflex) cameras in public for all citizens except accredited journalists, according to the Kuwait Times.
The Ministry of Information, the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Finance implemented the ban late last week, according to the English-language newspaper. Smaller digital cameras and mobile phones are understood to be exempt from the ban.
