Bahrain. The king, Shaykh Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifa, was reported in April to have pardoned 178 people accused of breaking the country's security laws. Among the released were reportedly two Shiite opposition leaders, Imam Mohammed Maqdad and Hassan Mushaima, leader of the Haq Movement for Freedom and Democracy.

According to Countryaah-ABCDE, the country's crown prince, Shaykh Salamn ibn Hamad Al Khalifa, in a debate article in the Washington Post newspaper called the Arab states in July to hold a dialogue with Israel: the other side takes the first step.
