Iran Calls for Probe into Bahrain Situation

During the phone conversation on Wednesday, Larijani expressed concern over the "tragic" humanitarian disaster in Bahrain, and called for immediate formation of an "impartial" committee to investigate the "catastrophe".

The Iranian speaker said that killing of protesters, raping of women and destruction of mosques in Bahrain were instances of violation of human rights and urged the IPU to adopt a "tough stance" on the crisis in Bahrain.

The top Iranian legislator also condemned the invasion of Bahrain by some regional countries and called on the IPU to take measures to help put an end to the military intervention.

"Certain countries in the region are actually accomplices in the massacre of the defenseless people of Bahrain by sending military forces and equipment to Bahrain. The Inter-parliamentary Union should not remain silent on such arbitrary behaviors."

The IPU president, for his part, expressed concern over the Bahrain crisis and hoped that a committee comprised of impartial organizations and countries would be set up by the IPU to find a solution to the Bahrain crisis.

Demonstrators in Bahrain have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old monarchy, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14th.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, at least 40 people have been killed, almost 100 have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.

The violence against protesters escalated when Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar dispatched their armed forces to the country to help Manama crack down on peaceful protesters.
