KUWAIT (Reuters) - Kuwait's public prosecutor has dropped an inquiry into a complaint over a recording suggesting that prominent figures were involved in a plot to overthrow the Gulf state's ruling system, ruling the tape was bogus, the state news agency said.

Government investigators determined that the recordings were not authentic and had been edited, the public prosecution was quoted as saying, as quoted by KUNA news agency. "Thus, the public prosecution has ruled out the suspicion of a criminal act ... and decided to cancel the case number."
