A judge has suspended two Kuwaiti newspapers for two weeks after they published stories about a recording that discusses an alleged plot to overthrow the Gulf state's ruling system, their editors and the state news agency said on Sunday. Kuwait, a major oil producer and U.S. ally, has imposed a news blackout on a sensitive investigation into the tape, saying earlier this month that media coverage about it was damaging to the country. The Information Ministry said the newspapers had published "articles and views on the case which could affect relevant investigations by the Public Prosecution, and could even undermine the national interest," the KUNA news agency reported. Al Watan editor-in-chief Sheikh Khalifa Ali al-Khalifa al-Sabah told Reuters that his publication would contest the decision and continue to update its website.

Everton's Belgian striker Kevin Mirallas celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the English Premier League football match between Everton and Manchester United at Goodison Park in Liverpool on April 20, 2014Manchester United manager David Moyes tasted defeat on his first return to Everton since leaving the club as his side were beaten 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday. Moyes was greeted with a smattering of boos as he walked out of the tunnel before the match, but it was the loss, which definitively ended United's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, that will trouble him more. Before Liverpool's 3-2 win at Norwich City earlier in the day, United had boasted the best away record in the division, but they were swept aside by Roberto Martinez's effervescent Everton team. Leighton Baines, a United transfer target until he signed a new long-term deal earlier this year, opened the scoring with a 28th-minute penalty and Kevin Mirallas added a second goal shortly before half-time.
