BAGHDAD - An Iraqi Shi'ite newspaper called on Sunday for a boycott of goods from Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Gulf countries that have supported the government of Bahrain in a crackdown against a mainly Shi'ite opposition.

Buying Saudi and Gulf goods contributes to the "slaughter of the Bahraini people" and boycotting them is a religious duty, the al-Bayyna daily newspaper said in a front page headline that demonstrated the escalating regional rhetoric over Bahrain.
