Bahrain orders its citizens to leave Iraq, Iran

Bahrain is ordering all of its citizens to immediately leave Iraq and Iran, amid rising tensions in the Persian Gulf.

Bahrain's Foreign Ministry made the announcement via its state-run news agency Saturday afternoon.

It cited the "unstable situation in the region and the grave developments and threats that threaten security and stability."

Baharin is a small, Sunni-ruled island nation off the coast of Saudi Arabia. It regularly accuses Iran of stirring dissent in its Shiite-majority population.

The chief of Iran's Revolutionary Guard says the country is in a "full-fledged intelligence war with the US"

The semi-official Fars news agency quoted General Hossein Salami as saying that the US political system had become weak, making an analogy to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
