Iran's state-backed Islamic Propagation Council urges Iranians to protest Saudi-Bahrain union

Iran has called on its people to stage rallies after this week's Friday prayers to protest against what it described as a US plan to annex Bahrain to Saudi Arabia.

The Islamic Propagation Coordination Council, which organises state-backed protests, urged Iranians "to protest against the American plan to annex Bahrain to Saudi Arabia and express their anger against the lackey regimes of Al-Khalifa and Al-Saud."

The leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council discussed on Monday plans to turn the bloc into a union, starting with Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
