Bahrain security forces crack down on protesters

Security forces used tear gas and rubber bullets in Bahrain yesterday when clashing with anti-government protesters who were demanding the release of an opposition leader, Salman. Earlier in the day, the UN Secretary general also called for his release.

Travellers to Bahrain should be aware that a prominent Shia cleric leader has called for demonstrations to continue as long as Salman is held.
