Bahrain: Plan to build 10-storey tower blocks stirs controversy.
A municipal councillor in Bahrain has criticized the "double standards" after permission was granted to build 10-storey tower blocks next to two villages. According to GDN, the plan has been attacked because the buildings will overlook government houses in Burhama and Sanabis.
Opponents say it is an "invasion of privacy." The proposal will now go to Bahrain's Municipalities and Agriculture Minister Ali Saleh Al Saleh for final approval.
