New pro-democracy demonstrations in Bahrain

Following recent measures adopted by the Bahraini government to grant citizenship to foreign nationals, protesters gathered in Sitra to call for the resignation of the current government rulers. Security forces used tear gas and fired bullets to disperse demonstrators in Manama, Sitra and other different cities and villages. Local sources report that many people have been killed and hundreds arrested.

Travellers should avoid all public and political gatherings since they may become violent without notice.
