In this context, Chairman of the Union of Workers of KPA Abdullah Al-Sarheed said the strike continued Saturday with increased duration from four hours on Friday to six hours, and only two hours the day before. Al-Sarheed said “We are waiting for the Director General of KPA Sheikh Yousef Al-Abdullah to make the initiative to communicate with the workers to settle their financial dues.” He added the strike will last 24 hours on Sunday.

3 referred to State security: Rabiya policemen referred three Bahrainis to the State Security to determine if they belong to any extremist groups, reports Al-Shahed daily. The three suspects were performing Friday prayer at a mosque when they stopped abruptly and tried to get out of the mosque in a suspicious manner, and their behavior raised doubts of the securitymen assigned to guard the mosque. A security source said all three suspects became jittery when asked about the reason for stopping the prayer suddenly.
