A crowd angry about a program they deemed insulting to some members of Kuwait's ruling family stormed a Kuwaiti private television station on Sunday, ransacking its offices, station officials said.

"Some of them were armed with pistols and knives. They attacked the studio and damaged it and beat up the workers. About 10 were injured," Mohammed Talal al-Saeed, executive manager of Scope TV, told Reuters.
