#AceWorldNews – KUWAIT – May 12 – Kuwait’s Islamic Affairs Minister Nayef al-Ajmi said Monday that the Gulf state’s ruler has accepted his resignation.

He was earlier accused by a senior US official of promoting jihad in Syria, AFP reported. Local media say Ajmi, who also held the justice ministry portfolio, has quit for health reasons.

In early April he submitted his resignation following accusations by a US official that he had links with jihadists in Syria.

However, at that time it was turned down by Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah.
