The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals did not address the question of whether the embargo was required under a U.S. dolphin protection law, but said an environmental group had filed the suit in the wrong court in 1988.

Kuwait on Tuesday became the first Arab nation to announce that it is easing restrictions in a four-decade-old economic blockade of Israel, declaring that it will no longer blacklist foreign companies that do business with the Jewish state. Foreign Minister Sheik Sabah al Ahmed al Jabbar al Sabah said that other Arab states have agreed to follow suit. But Sabah said Kuwait will continue to abide by the Arab League's direct boycott of Israel, signed by 21 member countries in 1951.
