Bahrain welcomes U.S. blacklisting of Iran Revolutionary Guards

DUBAI (Reuters) - Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry on Monday welcomed the U.S. decision to designate Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a foreign terrorist organization.

Bahrain, led by a Sunni Muslim royal family, has accused Shi’ite Muslim Iran of supporting Shi’ite anti-government groups on its territory. Tehran denies the charges.
