DUBAI - The Bahraini government, facing an uprising led by its Shi'ite majority, has revoked the nationality of 31 men for damaging national security, state news agency BNA reported on Wednesday.

The men include London-based dissidents Saeed al-Shehabi and Ali Mushaima, son of jailed opposition leader Hassan Mushaima, as well as clerics, human rights lawyers and activists, according to Mohammed al-Mascati, head of the Bahrain Youth Center for Human Rights.

In April, Ali Mushaima scaled the roof of Bahrain's embassy in London to publicize opposition demands for democratic change.
