Bahrain’s King Hamad on Sunday described a terror cell Manama said it smashed this week as an "isolated case" as relatives of the five Bahrainis allegedly belonging to the ring protested at the publication of the suspects' pictures.
"This is an isolated case," the official BNA news agency quoted King Hamad as saying.
He expressed "regret and astonishment" that there should be Bahrainis ready to carry out acts that would "harm the security of citizens and residents and undermine the economy," according to the news agency.
Furthermore, King Hamad said he hoped the five men arrested on suspicion of planning terror attacks would turn out to be innocent, however warned that they would be subject to the full force of the law if indeed proven guilty. (Albawaba.com)
