Kuwait remains suspicious of the whole political party thing, Reuters reports:

Kuwait's prime minister said on Monday that there were no plans to allow political parties at present, after the parliament speaker said it was time for the country to consider legalizing them.

"I say there is no intention pertaining to the issue of political parties; there's a constitution that explains these issues so let's leave it to the constitution," Prime Minister Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah told reporters.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan has elected to parliament the governor who was in office when the Taliban blew up two 1,500-year-old Buddha statues in Bamiyan province. Mawlawi Mohammed Islam Mohammadi blames the destruction on "Chechens and Arabs" who controlled the Taliban.

We got it, Mo.
