Bahrain: Bahrain MPs seek to ban pork

Several MPs belonging to the Al Asala bloc, have proposed heavy penalties for anyone importing or possessing pork.

The group has already drafted changes to Bahrain's penal code and are pushing for either two-month jail terms or fines of BD300 - or both.

Their proposal could be voted on during parliament’s session tomorrow.
