The Kuwait Stock Exchange halted trading in the shares of 21 companies on Thursday for failing to disclose their 2009 results.

The list published on the site of the bourse included mostly investment and real estate firms.

The move is routine in this Gulf Arab state, whose investment sector has been hit by the global financial crisis.

Among the halted companies were The Securities House, Agility, Industrial Investments Co, and Aayan Leasing & Investment Co. (Reuters)
