Saudi Arabia and Bahrain expel Lebanese ambassadors

Saudi Arabia on Friday ordered the Lebanese ambassador to the kingdom to leave the country within 48 hours and halted all imports from Lebanon, in response to comments from a Lebanese minister who called war on Saudi “aggression” Yemen. Hours later, the Kingdom of Bahrain ordered the Lebanese ambassador to leave the country within two days for the same reason, Bahrain’s foreign ministry said. The Lebanese prime minister and president discussed the Saudi decision and called on the country’s information minister to make the “appropriate decision,” an apparent call for him to step down in the hope that it will ease tension.
