Newsline: Iran expels Bahrain envoy

Iran has expelled a senior official from Bahrain’s embassy in Tehran in apparent retaliation after the Sunni-ruled Gulf state did the same to its envoy in Manama. “The number two official in Bahrain’s embassy in Iran is persona non grata and Mr Bassam al-Dossari must leave Iran’s territory within 72 hours,” the official IRNA news agency quoted a foreign ministry statement as saying. Bahrain on Thursday recalled its ambassador from Iran and ordered Tehran’s envoy to leave within 72 hours, citing Iranian “interference” in its affairs. Iran has rejected “the baseless accusations from Bahrain”.
