Nur al-Cubicle

Adel Eidane, Kuwait correspondent for al Arabiya, was arrested today in Kuwait after the network broadcast the story of a clash between an armed group and government security forces. The story included news of the discovery of arms and ammunition inside an abandoned car south of Kuwait City. The story was denied by the Kuwaiti official news agency KUNA.

Do al Hurra reporters ever get arrested? Is arrest a badge of the free press?
