Bahrain arrests 47 people, 290 charges linked to terrorism in crackdown

The statement did not specify the dates of the arrests but said they were part of “one of the most important preventive operations”, triggered by “attacks on police” and a fire at a Saudi Aramco oil pipeline in Bahrain last year.

Bahraini police said on Sunday they had arrested 47 people on charges linked to terrorism, including plots to assassinate “public figures”, as well as filing charges against another 290.
In a statement released by Bahrain’s police force, the interior minister said law-enforcement agencies had arrested 47 “terrorist agents” and foiled attacks across the country, including planned killings of “officials and public figures”.
Police had also transferred the cases of 290 wanted persons and suspects to the public prosecutor’s office, it said.
