Kuwait opposition leader bail

Kuwaiti opposition leader and former MP Mussallam al-Barrak (C) attends a demonstration in Kuwait City on April 17, 2013, against a court verdict to jail him for five years for insulting the Emir of Kuwait. Barrak, who says he is prepared to go to jail at any time, had refused to turn himself in three times because interior ministry officials failed to produce an original arrest warrant. He has now been granted bail.
