Kuwait medical team hopes for Bahrain clearance

Kuwait medical team hopes for Bahrain clearance

An organizer of a Kuwaiti medical convoy blocked from entering Bahrain says the team is ready to try again if it gets official clearance.
Dr. Adnan Fadeq says the convoy returned to Kuwait on Monday after being told it could not cross from Saudi Arabia to Bahrain, which is under martial law after more than a month of anti-government protests.
Fadeq says no reason was given for the denial of permission to the convoy, which included 53 medical personnel and 21 ambulances. Bahraini authorities also have not commented.
A Saudi-led military force is in Bahrain aiding the Western-backed monarchy.
