City OK with new mural: Official says Eye Level Art just outside of strictly monitored area

This new mural at Eye Level Art, done by nationally known artist and Charleston native Shepard Fairey, is the latest — and one of the most elaborate — to grace the neighborhood along Spring and Cannon streets.

KUWAIT CITY — Kuwait’s official news agency says a group of Arab League observers in Syria has been attacked and two monitors from Kuwait have been lightly injured.

The state-run KUNA news agency says the observers were attacked in the northern city of Latakia by “unknown protesters” on Monday.

The report Tuesday did not detail their injuries. It says the monitors injured are both Kuwaiti army officers. They were taken to the hospital, but have since returned to work at the Arab mission’s headquarters in Damascus, KUNA says.
