Bahraini Insiders Believe Formula 1 Circuit May be Set on Flames

Rumors say that 14 February Youth coalition and several other resistant groups will set the circuit on flames by Cocktail Molotov or some sort of bomb to stop the competition.

(MANAMA, Bahrain) - Rumors have been spreading around the country about setting fire to the circuit’s main building or planting a bomb on the days of competition.

The Grand Prix competition was cancelled in 2011 due to the unrest and mass demonstrations of the people against the government who demanded political reforms and equal rights in the Gulf Kingdom of Bahrain. Last year, however, the race was held despite the reluctance of people and the condemnation of many human rights groups.

Recently Bahraini protesters vowed to stop the event for this by any means because they believe that the government intends to degrade the revolution and to give a wrong safe image about the country. Speaking to young protester who refused to give his name, he declared:

“We have kindly asked all competitors not to take part in this event and we’ve even sent them messages on this regard. Our people are getting killed every day by the regime forces and getting tortures inside prisons and holding this race will even worsen our position and everybody would think that there is nothing happening in the country while it is not true.”

He also added:

“Earlier we have warned all teams not to come to the country and we intend to set fire on the main building during the competition, therefore we are not responsible for any casualties.”

Rumors say that 14 February Youth coalition and several other resistant groups will set the circuit on flames by Cocktail Molotov or some sort of bomb to stop the competition.

There have been demonstrations inside the country of Bahrain against Al-Khalifa monarchy since February 2011 demanding for political reforms and equal rights which were harshly oppressed by the government after bringing Saudi troops to control the situation. Human Rights reports says more than 95 people were killed and many have been arrested.
