Bahrain, a mainly Shiite island from the coast of Saudi Arabia, hosts the U.S. Navy’s fifth Fleet.
Since April, Bahrain has witnessed a widening government’s attack on opposition groups and dissent on an amount unseen since its 2011 Arab Spring protest. Most lately, the Sunni-brought government removed citizenship from the prominent Shiite cleric, sparking a continuing protest while watching cleric’s home.
An Inside Ministry statement late on Monday states individuals arrested were attempting to “incite people or instigate individuals to abuse others.” It offered no further particulars on the amount of people arrested, nor their names.
DUBAI, Uae — Police in Bahrain say they’ve made a number of arrests over people “misusing social networkingInch among an intensifying attack on dissent within the small island kingdom.
