Bahrain Mirror: Sudan's Acting Ambassador to Bahrain, Mohammed Al-Moataz Jaafar, said that the Sudanese community amounts to about 7,000 nationals, most of whom hold the Bahraini nationality.

He added, in the Blue Nile television news coverage from Manama, that Sudanese nationals are employed in various government institutions besides the private sector.

Since the beginning of the millennium, Bahrain has embarked on a massive naturalization process aimed at altering the country's demographics.

The majority of the naturalized citizens work in the army and the security services.

Pakistani Ambassador Saeed Ahmed Khan has confirmed that there are 25,000 Pakistanis residing in the island kingdom, mostly working in security agencies.
