Get the ref a jersey

International Business Times --

Kuwait's justice and Islamic affairs minister Nayef al-Ajmi, accused of fundraising for terrorist groups in Syria, has resigned citing health reasons. Al-Ajmi strongly denies having any links to jihadi groups fighting in Syria and rejected the claims against him as "baseless and groundless". .. The US Treasury Undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence David Cohen had previously said that al-Ajmi has "a history for promoting jihad in Syria", and that images of his face had been used on fundraising material for the al-Qaida-linked Jabhat al-Nusra militia. Cohen described al-Ajmi's appointment to the Kuwaiti cabinet as a "step in the wrong direction".

So who has the US put pressure on to resign over support to Assad regime?
