Kuwait navy to help Bahrain

Kuwait, March 18, 2011

Kuwait's navy plans to head to Bahrain soon to protect the island nation's waters, Kuwait's ambassador to Bahrain was quoted as saying on Thursday.   

On Monday, Bahrain asked for support under a Gulf defence pact after weeks of protests by anti-government activists.

The ambassador, Sheikh Azzam al-Sabah, was cited by Kuwait's Watan news service, which gave no further details. Kuwaiti officials could immediately not be reached for comment.   

Some 1,000 Saudi soldiers and 500 police officers from the United Arab Emirates entered Bahrain earlier this week as Bahraini security forces led a crackdown on protests that have been going on for over a month. - Reuters
