MP Urges Action on Saudi 'Crimes'

Referring to Saudi 'atrocities against the Bahraini population, Deputy Chairman of the Majlis (parliament) Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Hossein Ebrahimi said in a Friday interview with Fars news agency that international bodies "must adopt strong and immediate measures" regarding the regional developments, "otherwise they would be considered complicit in the crimes committed by the Saudi Wahhabi regime.”

While the Bahraini people, who are subjected to suppression by the Manama regime, seek assistance from the Muslim world , the Saudi regime, which claims to advocate Islamic principles, wreaks havoc on the small Persian Gulf island nation, he added.

The senior legislator further called on international bodies to take a firm stance against Riyadh's human rights violations and its backing for the suppression of the Bahraini people.

On March 13, Saudi Arabia dispatched its armed forces to Bahrain at Manama's request to quell countrywide protests in the small sheikhdom that is home to the major Fifth Fleet Navy base of the US military.

Since mid-February, thousands of anti-government protesters in Bahrain have poured into the streets, calling for an end to al-Khalifa dynasty, which has ruled the country for over forty years.

According to local sources, dozens of people have been killed and hundreds arrested so far during the government clampdown on peaceful demonstrations.
