A human rights group has condemned the sentencing of a Kuwaiti man to five years in prison for a comment he made on Twitter about Sunni-Shia theology.
Musab Shamsah was convicted on Monday of insulting the Prophet Muhammad with a tweet on the role of imams in Islam.
He was the second Kuwaiti to be found guilty of such a charge in three weeks.
It was an "insult for all Kuwaitis for the government to give itself the authority to decide what's insulting to religion", Human Rights Watch said.
