DUBAI - Bahrain's crown prince warned all sides against escalating a standoff with disgruntled majority Shi'ites seeking an elected government in the Gulf Arab kingdom, asking for patience ahead of a national dialogue.

Bahrain suffered its worst unrest since the 1990s last month when seven people died in a heavy-handed security response to protests by Shi'ites who have long complained of discrimination in Sunni-ruled Bahrain, a close US and Saudi ally.

Crown Prince Sheikh Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa, tapped to lead a dialogue with the opposition, said the protests would continue to be allowed but must remain peaceful.
