Fight at Kuwait premier league under 20!

Looks like fatal fights in Kuwait are not only happening in shopping malls but are also invading football courts! I’m observing that the re-occurrence of fights in sport events are on the rise in Kuwait and no one is doing a thing!

Latest was a knives fight at Kuwait premier league under 20 that started after the last night’s match between Arabi and Kazima sports clubs. To my surprise the fight started between the players themselves and escalated by the crowd, and to make things even worse the police were non-existent to contain it! How can they even play without police or guards? I’m so sick of this chaos.

(left to right) Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi and US Secretary of State John Kerry shakes hands after a statement in Geneva, on November 24, 2013Analysts Sunday praised a ground-breaking interim deal with Iran to rein in its nuclear program in return for sanctions relief, but warned negotiations for a full agreement will prove even tougher. “The interim deal is a strong one, which achieves a broader array of constraints and verification on Iran’s nuclear program than ever previously contemplated,” said Suzanne Maloney, senior fellow with the Brookings Institution. She stressed that the six-month accord tied Tehran “to an ongoing diplomatic process whose primary rewards remain deferred until a far more ambitious agreement can be achieved.” After almost a decade of stalemate in negotiations between Iran and the so-called P5+1 group — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States — things have moved at breakneck speed since Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani took office in August and was hailed by some as a moderate.

Kerry joins Iran talks to push for nuclear breakthrough

Kerry and Lavrov sit together during a photo opportunity prior to a meeting, in GenevaBy Justyna Pawlak and Fredrik Dahl GENEVA (Reuters) – Foreign ministers from Iran and six world powers laboured on Saturday to overcome remaining difficulties and clinch a breakthrough deal aimed at allaying Western suspicions over Tehran’s atomic ambitions. With the sides edging closer, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and foreign ministers of the five other nations joined the talks with Iran as they entered an unscheduled fourth day. The demand that Iran stop or slow construction of a reactor that could yield potential bomb material appeared to be the main outstanding problem holding up an agreement. British Foreign Minister William Hague and Germany’s Guido Westerwelle both cautioned that a deal was not yet guaranteed and that there was work still to do.
