Major Diplomatic Spat between Iran and Bahrain

Bahrain has recalled its ambassador from Iran on Thursday, and ordered Tehran’s envoy to leave within 72 hours.

In a strongly-worded statement, the Bahraini Foreign Ministry said the decision was made “in view of [Iran’s] evil attempts and practices through which it aims to fuel sectarian sedition and impose its hegemony on the entire region”.

Bahrain, with a majority Shia population ruled by Sunnis, has suffered from unrest since a pro-democracy uprising in 2011.
