The Kuwait Police have arrested an Egyptian man for posting on social networks a video recorded from inside a car in which he complains about the scorching heat and the sand storms that hit that country on the Arabian peninsula, reports The Washington Post.
“I’m inside a dust storm right now, I literally can’t see anything in front of me,” the man says in Arabic in a video posted on TikTok, showing the dust covering the road like a thick fog.
