BAHRAIN ARRESTS 14 IRANIANS FOR ILLEGAL ENTERY

Bahrain's security agency, on Saturday, arrested 14 Iranians for illegally entering the country with forged Asian passports.

"They turned out to be Iranians, who had bought the passports to enter Bahrain, in coordination with Bahrainis of Iranian origin," said director general of the Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science, in a statement.

The official said, the case has been referred to the Public Prosecutor.

Bahrain cut all diplomatic ties with Iran in 2016, citing Tehran's interference in its domestic affairs.

The decision was made one day after Saudi Arabia broke its ties with Iran, as demonstrators stormed and set fire to the Saudi Embassy in Tehran.
