Bahrain arrests Kuwaiti - Role in protests

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 22: The Bahraini authorities have taken into custody a Kuwaiti youth for taking part in demonstrations in the capital Manama and the Island of Sutra several days ago, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily.
According to Bahraini security sources the 18-year-old youth, identified only as A.G., was caught red-handed placing obstacles on the road to prevent police from reaching trouble spots.
The Bahraini security authorities are said to have informed the Kuwaiti Embassy in Manama about the arrest of the suspect. The security authorities allege the youth was arrested for taking part in the demonstrations and helping others put up a road block.
However, according to reliable sources the youth left for Bahrain with his mother to visit relatives. His mother claims the son was picked up by the security authorities when he went to have lunch with his relatives.
He was allegedly picked from outside the house of his relatives. The mother also says her son was not involved in any demonstrations.
The Bahraini authorities have begun investigations with the suspect. He is expected to be handed over to the Public Prosecutor along with other suspects.
