A judge has suspended two Kuwaiti newspapers for two weeks after they published stories about a recording that discusses an alleged plot to overthrow the Gulf state's ruling system, their editors and the state news agency said on Sunday. Kuwait, a major oil producer and U.S. ally, has imposed a news blackout on a sensitive investigation into the tape, saying earlier this month that media coverage about it was damaging to the country. The Information Ministry said the newspapers had published "articles and views on the case which could affect relevant investigations by the Public Prosecution, and could even undermine the national interest," the KUNA news agency reported. Al Watan editor-in-chief Sheikh Khalifa Ali al-Khalifa al-Sabah told Reuters that his publication would contest the decision and continue to update its website.
