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.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain opposes the death penalty and he “raised the issue with the Bahraini Government.”
