Attempt to smuggle fugitives wanted for terrorism charges foiled in Bahrain
An attempt to smuggle six fugitives wanted on terrorism charges out of Bahrain by boat was foiled, the Bahraini ministry of interior announced on Thursday night.
The boat was equipped to carry the fugitives and sail out from the Samaheej coast, a statement by the ministry read.
Investigations revealed that one of the arrestees was in contact with another fugitive from a terrorist cell based in Iran, who organized the smuggling operation. Investigations also led to identifying and arresting some individuals suspected of sheltering and assisting the six fugitives, the ministry added.
The General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science in Bahrain has taken legal proceedings to refer the fugitives to the public prosecution.
