Bahrain halts flights to and from Iran

Tehran, Jan 5, IRNA – Bahrain said on Tuesday it stopped all flights to and from Iran, a day after it recalled ambassador from Tehran, according to Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV and Bahrain News Agency.

Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic relations on Sunday and froze commercial ties with Iran the following day after its embassy in Tehran was stormed in response to its execution of prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.
