Thousands of Kuwaitis protest voting rules ahead of poll

KUWAIT - Tens of thousands of Kuwaitis packed into a square opposite parliament on Sunday in a peaceful opposition-led rally against new voting rules ahead of elections on December 1.
Recent demonstrations against the electoral changes, ordered by Kuwait's ruler last month, have led to clashes between protesters and police as marches spread out of the areas usually designated for rallies.
Hundreds of Kuwaiti men wearing white traditional robes streamed into the square where opposition leaders gave speeches from a stage to protesters, many sitting on carpets drinking tea as others sang Kuwaiti songs.
