Bahrain has deported a US nursery school teacher it says wrote articles on social media sites linked to radical groups and for violating the terms of her work permit as the kingdom intensifies its crackdown on dissent.

The Ministry of State for Communications did not identify the woman but said she wrote under a pen name and had broken the law by working as an unaccredited journalist.

The teacher wrote articles for online publications including As-Safir newspaper, which is linked to Lebanon's Iran-backed Shi'ite group Hezbollah, and the outlawed Bahrain Center for Human Rights newsletter, the state news agency said on Saturday.

No one at the Bahrain Center for Human Rights was available for comment.
