Clerics slam Catholic Church construction in Bahrain

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Seventy-one clerics said in a statement that Bahraini rulers should call off the decision.

The church is being built in Awali neighborhood in central Manama on a 9,000-square-meter plot of land.
Bishop Camillo Ballin is to transfer the seat of the Roman Catholic Church's Vicariate of Northern Arabia from Kuwait to Bahrain after the construction of the church.
