Bahrain clashes continue
The Formula One Grand Prix is still set to go ahead tomorrow in Bahrain, despite continuing clashes between security forces and protesters in which the opposition claim one person has been killed.
Thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators clashed with police in Manama, as pressure grows for the event to be cancelled.
Ed Miliband has urged the Government to intervene and put pressure on organisers to pull out, but the Prime Minister insisted the UK was right to support the reforms underway in the country.
In a conversation with the Foreign Minister of Bahrain, the UK Foreign Secretary William Hague called on Bahrain to "show restraint in dealing with protests" and demanded "further progress in implementing political reforms".
Mr Hague said: "We urge all sides to restrain from violence and to enter into an inclusive and constructive political dialogue to achieve long term stability for Bahrain."
F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone came under fire last night for dismissing the crisis as "a lot of nonsense".
