Bahrain Cuts Diplomatic Ties With Iran

Bahrain has become the second country to cut diplomatic ties with Iran after Saudi Arabia expelled the Iranian mission from Riyadh.

The execution of Sheikh Nimr Al Nimr by Saudi Arabia has led to tensions within the region.

Iran and Saudi Arabia represent two opposing blocs of the Sunnis and the Shites respectively.

Bahrain is ruled by a Muslim Sunni king and Bahrain has also issued a 48 hour ultimatum for the Iranian mission to leave the country.
