BAHRAIN: Firebomb scare for Shura member


 MANAMA: A firebomb apparently targeting policemen sparked a fire after landing in the garden of Shura Council member Dr Bahiya Al Jishi's home in Mahooz yesterday. The policemen called firemen who put out the blaze before it could spread, reports our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej.
Dr Al Jishi, her family members and the gardener were not at home when the incident happened at about 4pm. But she said it is sad that innocent people are being terrorised at their homes.
Dr Al Jishi also expressed concern over the security situation in the country.
Several MPs, separately, called for tough punishment for those who use religious pulpits to incite violence and hatred. No one is above the law, they added.
Several jurists also called for stricter implementation of the laws.
