Kuwait's Justice and Islamic Affairs Minister has resigned, state news agency KUNA said on Monday, after a senior U.S. official said he had called for jihad in syria and promoted the funding of terrorism.Last month Nayef al-Ajmi rejected the comments made in March by U.S. Treasury Undersecretary David Cohen as "groundless and baseless", and was backed by the cabinet. Some Kuwaiti and U.S. officials fear campaigns that give militant Islamist groups funds to buy arms will fuel violence in syria and stir sectarian tension in Kuwait.Interior Minister Sheikh Mohammad al-Hamad al-Sabah was appointed acting Islamic Affairs Minister and Cabinet Affairs Minister Sheikh Mohammad al-Mubarak al-Sabah will take on the additional role of acting Justice Minister, KUNA said.
