Gulf squeeze on dissent raises alarm with allies - Article Photos 7/7

Opposition demonstrators gather in Mishref, Kuwait on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012. Thousands of protestors marched on the 6th Ring Road Highway protesting a decree by the emir that amends the election law. Kuwait riot police used stun grenades and tear gas to disperse the crowds. Kuwait could bring further questions from the West over its widening clampdowns on an Islamist-led opposition ahead of Dec. 1 parliamentary elections, including bans on public gatherings of more than 20 people. Protesters, however, have defied the order and on Sunday thousands staged a march in a Kuwait City suburb as security forces countered with tear gas and stun grenades. (AP Photo/Gustavo Ferrari)
