TEHRAN - Iran has recalled its ambassador from Bahrain in protest against the killing of Shi'ite Muslim demonstrators in the island state, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported on Wednesday.

State TV said the ambassador had been recalled for consultations, in what would appear to be a tit-for-tat move after Bahrain which withdrew its ambassador from Tehran for consultations on Tuesday to protest at Tehran's criticisms.

Iran, the main Shi'ite power in the Gulf, has condemned the crackdown by Bahrain's Saudi-backed Sunni royal family against protesters from its Shi'ite majority, saying it could lead to regional instability.
