Ecclestone plays down fresh Bahrain unrest
15 February 2012, 16:07
Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone has played down the outbreak of
fresh unrest in Bahrain, insisting the violence posed no threat to this
season's Grand Prix.
Bahraini police fired tear gas and birdshot at pro-democracy protesters
in clashes early on Wednesday as the kingdom marked the first
anniversary of a Shiite-led uprising.
The violence revived memories of last year's unrest, which ultimately led to the cancellation of the 2011 race, which is due to take place this season on April 20-22 at Sakhir.
