Bahrain: Opposition activists detained
A Bahraini lawyer conveyed security forces have detained six more opposition members in a crackdown on the kingdom's majority Shiites. According to the AP, lawyer Mohammed al-Tajir said Tuesday a total of 10 activists, including eight leading members of the opposition, have been arrested since Saturday.
Security officials said they are targeting opposition figures seeking to harm national stability. The crackdown follows a series of violent Shiite-led protests accusing the government of discrimination.
