Saudi Arabia sent its troops into Bahrain

As the turmoil in the Middle East continues especially the Libyan riots, there are currently reports of Saudi Arabia sending its troops into Bahrain, as Bahrain requested from Saudi Arabia its support in fending off protestors.


Saudi Arabia tries to stabiles the region and the violent riots that spread across Bahrain.
