Bahrain Mirror: The American journalist Nicholas Kristof said that the Bahraini authorities denied him a visa to attend the IISS Manama Dialogue in Bahrain.

The New York Times journalist stated on his Twitter account: "Repressive Bahrain has denied me a visa to attend the IISS Manama Dialogue."

"It is just a dialogue. What are you afraid of, King Hamad?," he wondered.

Repressive Bahrain has denied me a visa to attend the IISS Manama Dialogue. Some dialogue! Some ally! What are you afraid of, King Hamad?

Kristof had been already denied entry into Bahraini territories in December 2012. The authorities in the airport prevented him from entering Bahrain although US citizens have the right to transit in Bahrain for 72 hours.

The Manama Dialogue is scheduled to kick off on October 30 and will last for two days.
