Manama — Bahrain has arrested two persons for exploiting the situation in Yemen to disturb peace and national unity in the country.

The arrest was announced in a tweet by the Interior Ministry on Thursday night after warning the people to avoid statements that are against Bahrain’s approach towards the air raids launched by Saudi Arabia with the participation of 10 countries, including five GCC countries. It also urged the public to seek information from official sources to avoid rumours.

In a statement, the ministry highlighted that a delicate situation was prevailing in the region and special measures had been taken by Bahrain and other GCC countries to solve an internal Arab matter as well as to support the legitimacy, security and stability in Yemen.

The Interior Ministry warned against any attempt to exploit the current situation and cause disunity among the ranks of citizens and residents by spreading malicious information through digital media or issuing statements against the approach of Bahrain.

The Interior Ministry said it will take legal action against anything that could risk the safety and security of the society and stressed that the situation required strong national unity to promote security, general order and stability.
