DUBAI - Bahrain has deported at least five Lebanese residents for security reasons, a Lebanese diplomat said on Monday, after a crackdown on protests stoked regional sectarian tensions.

"They have deported five or six people in what they said was a security decision," the Lebanese diplomat told Reuters by telephone. "Not all of them were Shi'ites, they were from other religious sects including Sunnis and Christians."
He said that in total 16 Lebanese residents of Bahrain were told they were to be expelled, but the Lebanese embassy was in talks with authorities to try to prevent those still in capital Manama from being deported.
