Bahrain Mirror (Reuters): Bahrain has deported several Lebanese residents whom it believes had links to or supported the Shi'ite Muslim group Hezbollah, which Gulf Arab states have declared a terrorist organisation, its Interior Ministry said in a Tweet on Monday.
Bahrain's larger Gulf Arab ally Saudi Arabia said on Sunday it would punish anybody who belongs to the Iran-backed Lebanese group, which Manama has accused, alongside Tehran's Revolutionary Guards, of fomenting strife in the island kingdom.
