Bahrain issues Iraq, Iran travel ban on citizens amid regional tension

Bahrain has urged its citizens to avoid travelling to Iraq and Iran amid regional tensions, Bna reported on Saturday.

In an advisory issued by the Foreign Ministry, Bahrainis have been banned from travelling to Iraq and Iran as concerns about a possible conflict have flared since the White House ordered warships and bombers to the region to counter an alleged, unexplained threat from Iran that has seen America order nonessential diplomatic staff out of Iraq.

Bahrainis have been asked to take utmost caution and called on citizens living in the aforementioned countries to leave the country immediately
