Newsline: Bahrain summons Iraqi ambassador

Bahrain’s foreign ministry summoned Iraq’s ambassador in Manama to protest against remarks by Iraqi officials denouncing the execution of men convicted of a 2014 bomb attack, state news agency BNA said. The execution on Sunday of three men, whose attack killed three policemen, has drawn condemnation from rights groups. Iran called it a “reckless” act. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain opposes the death penalty and he “raised the issue with the Bahraini Government.”
