Report: Bahrain blacklists Hezbollah as terror group

Bahrain on Tuesday became the first Arab state to blacklist Hezollah as a terrorist group, Saudi media outlet Al Arabiya reported.
According to the report the decision was based mainly on the Lebanese Shiite organization's alleged support and training of radical shiite gorups against Bahrain.
“The measure is to protect Bahrain’s security and stability from Hezbollah’s threats,” Bahraini MP Adil al-Asoumi told Al Arabiya.
He also reportedly said that there is evidence that Hezbollah is instigating violence against the Bahraini government.
