US concerned at moves to suspend Bahrain opposition

Bahrain's Al-Wefaq opposition group takes part in an anti-government protest in the village of Shakhora, west of Manama, on January 3, 2014The United States has “strong concerns” about a lawsuit filed in Bahrain to suspend the activities of the Gulf kingdom’s largest Shiite opposition group, a US official said Tuesday. Bahrain moved to suspend Al-Wefaq for three months for allegedly violating the kingdom’s law on associations, the official BNA news agency reported Sunday. Al-Wefaq has led the protest movement that started in February 2011 by Bahrain’s Shiite majority against the ruling Sunni regime and has repeatedly called for the establishment of a constitutional monarchy. Political parties are banned in Bahrain, as in other Gulf Arab monarchies, and Al-Wefaq has the status of an association in the country which is a key regional US ally.
