Bahrain police arrested Ali Salman, head of al-Wefaq opposition bloc that has spearheaded protests against the authorities in the Bahrain kingdom.

In a statement issued by al-Wefaq, it underlined that  " Salman is in detention after a series of illegal measures which comprised summonsing him to the office of criminal investigation and bringing him before a public prosecutor", adding that supporters of Salman were gathering outside his home after hearing of his arrest.

Al-Wefaq demanded  Salman's "immediate release".

Al-Wefaq, the most important opposition grouping in Bahrain, wants a constitutional monarchy in the Gulf nation ruled by the al-Khalifa dynasty.
