Tehran: Iran has recalled its ambassador from Bahrain to protest crackdowns on mainly Shi’ite protesters.

State TV says Iran's Ambassador in Manama, Mahdi Aghajafari, has been asked to return home for consultations.

Iran has denounced the deployment of a Saudi-led force from Gulf allies to prop up the Sunni monarchy against widening demonstrations by the Shi’ite-led opposition.
