Bahrain police interrogate opposition chiefs

A handout picture released by Bahrain's main opposition Al-Wefaq group shows on July 7, 2014 shows Sheikh Ali Salman meeting senior US diplomat Tom Malinowski (unseen) on the outskirts of ManamaAli Salman, a cleric who heads Al-Wefaq, was called in on Tuesday along with his political assistant, ex-MP Khalil Marzooq, by Bahrain’s Public Security. The interior ministry said they were questioned separately about meeting with visiting US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labour, Tom Malinowski. It said the meeting at the US embassy violated a rule stipulating that contacts between political associations and foreign parties “should be coordinated with the foreign ministry and in the presence” of its representative. The questioning came after Bahrain declared Malinowski, “unwelcome” after he met Salman and other opposition leaders, and demanded his immediate departure.
