Kuwait Banned Use of DSLR in Public

This from DPReview, “The Kuwait government has banned the use of DSLRs cameras in public, according to a local media reports. The English-language Kuwait Times says the country’s Ministry of Information, Ministry of Social Affairs and Ministry of Finance have ruled photography with DSLRs should be used only by accredited journalists. There is currently no official confirmation of the decision, why it has been introduced or detail about how precise a definition of the term ‘DSLR’ will be applied.”

Now this is a real bummer especially when DSLR and mobile phones are becoming such a big thing in the gadget industry.  Can’t imagine a country like Kuwait would come up with something like this.
