Call to destroy houses at Bahrain's Tubli Bay
Bahraini Deputy Ali Mattar on Tuesday urged the government to demolish houses, take back lands and withdraw factory licences of those who have contributed to the Tubli Bay crisis. According to Bahrain Tribune, the remarks were made during a discussion on a proposal to protect the bay and turn it into tourism attraction.
The size of Tubli Bay was 52 sq. km in the 1970s which had been reduced to 31 sq. km today, said one of the participants in the debate.
