Grand Prix warning
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.”
