About 500 Bahrainis marched in support of Hizbullah Thursday as the government sponsored a fund-raising campaign for Lebanese civilians. Chanting "Hizbullah, we're with you," the men, women and children waved Hizbullah and Bahraini flags and toted pictures of Sheik Hassan Nasrallah as they walked along a highway near the village of Abu Saybeh in the northwest of the island. The state-backed fund raisers flooded mobile phones with text messages that asked people to donate money and relief supplies at shopping malls. The Bahraini Red Crescent would collect the funds and goods and deliver them to Lebanon, the messages said.
