Bahrain's Shiite-dominated opposition begged the international community Monday for prompt action to "protect the people of Bahrain," after a Saudi-led military force entered the small island kingdom to help the Sunni-led government quell escalating protests.
"What we are witnessing in Manama [Bahrain's capital] is no peaceful protest … . It's wanton, gangster-style takeover of people's lives," he wrote.
On the microblogging website Twitter, Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid Al Khalifa said the protesters, who first took to the streets on Feb. 14, were deceiving the world.
