Kuwaiti shop accused of sticking googly eyes on fish to make them appear more fresh
There's something fishy going on.
Police in Kuwait shut down a fishmonger on Saturday after the owners were accused of sticking googly eyes on the fish in order to make them appear more fresh, reports the Al Bayan newspaper.
Images of one googley-eyed fish were shared on Twitter, where they went viral.
A rival company in Kuwait responded to the incident by advertising the sale of "fish without cosmetic surgery."

In July, another Kuwaiti fishmonger was accused of stuffing fish with steel nails in order to increase their weight and market value, reports the BBC.
