Bahrain has filed a lawsuit to suspend Al-Wefaq`s activities for three months after the largest Shiite opposition group allegedly violated the kingdom`s law on associations, the official BNA news agency reported Sunday.
Bahrain police have arrested Ali Salman, head of the main Shiite opposition bloc Al-Wefaq that has spearheaded protests against the authorities in the Sunni-ruled kingdom, the group said on Saturday.
Bahrain`s largest opposition group Wednesday dismissed a government statement acknowledging "instances" of abuse, saying the repression of mainly Shiite anti-government protesters is "systematic."
Earlier this year, Bahrain`s Sunni monarchy crushed pro-democracy protests, spearheaded by the majority Shi’ites.
