Grand Prix warn­ing

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A FOR­MER lead­ing politi­cian has said there are “fears we could see some ca­su­al­ties” dur­ing this week­end’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

Jasim Hu­sain rep­re­sented the op­po­si­tion group Al-we­faq for five years be­fore re­sign­ing in protest dur­ing anti-gov­ern­ment demon­stra­tions that rocked the di­vided king­dom last year.

Not much has changed since then and Hu­sain fears the Grand Prix could be used as an ex­cuse for more trou­ble if demon­stra­tions get out of hand.

He said: “There is this fear that we could see some ca­su­al­ties. It’s now a chal­lenge for the se­cu­rity forces who have to han­dle things prop­erly. They should avoid us­ing force.”
