Kuwait lawmakers ask to question deputy PM

KUWAIT - Two Kuwaiti lawmakers asked on Sunday to question a deputy prime minister in the week-old government over what they described as misuse of public funds, a sign of opposition rare in the Gulf Arab region.
Sunday's request by two lawmakers from the liberal National Action Bloc to question Sheikh Ahmad Fahad Sabah, deputy prime minister for economic affairs, was the second such request since the new cabinet was formed last week.
