  1. Foreign minister won’t mediate

    BAHRAIN: Foreign Minister Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Khalifa has rejected a Kuwaiti offer to mediate the kingdom’s political crisis.

    Leading opposition group Wefaq said on Sunday that it would accept an offer from Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah to oversee talks between Bahrain’s ruling Khalifa family and civil rights groups.

    Protesters have been forced off the streets by troops, including forces from Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

    Mr Khalifa said today there were no plans for Kuwaiti-led dialogue and that martial law would continue.
