Bahrain Mirror: A member of Al-Qaeda in Bahrain said that the security apparatus contacted them in 2013 to recruit them, in order to execute a scheme to assassinate dissidents, mainly Mr. Abdulwahab Hussein.

Mohammad Saleh said in a videotaped testimony aired by Al-Jazeera that he met officials in the National Security Agency who asked him to lead a cell to assassinate Shiite dissidents.

Al-Saleh said he made calls with leaders in the organization in Saudi Arabia to provide arms to execute the plan, before he was arrested by Saudi Arabia when he entered its territory over suspicion.

Seven months following King Hamad's movements, Mohammad Saleh was released. He met the king who confirmed that Saleh was oppressed and that he will compensate him.
