WASHINGTON - The White House chided US allies Yemen and Bahrain on Sunday for violence used against protesters in those countries and urged both to exercise restraint.

"We urge the governments of these countries to show restraint, and to respect the universal rights of their people," the White House said in a statement.

"We urge the government of Bahrain to pursue a peaceful and meaningful dialogue with the opposition rather than resorting to the use of force."
