BEIRUT - Dubai Police chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim said that a Hezbollah-trained
operative perpetrated the Monday blast that killed three police officers
outside Bahrain's Manama, including an Emirati national.
"The criminal who carried out the operation to assassinate the Emirati
martyr, First Lieutenant Tareq Mohammed al-Shehhi, used to go to Lebanon and
was given explosives training by Hezbollah," Khalfan said in a message on
the social networking Twitter site.
The police chief went on to accuse the Bahraini opposition of taking sides
with Iran against Gulf States.
"The Bahraini opposition has become an enemy to the states of the Arabian
Gulf and a close friend of the Persians [Iran]."
An explosion on Monday killed three security troops in the Shiite-populated
town of Daih outside Bahrain's capital when security forces from the Gulf
state dispersed a demonstration.
A Shiite-led uprising against the Bahraini kingdom was crushed in 2011,
however security incidents and sporadic demonstrations have persisted.

for determining whether the use of a work in any particular case qualifies

criteria to qualify as an instance of "fair use". Rather, "fair use" is
determined by the overall extent to which the cited work does or does not
substantially satisfy the criteria in their totality. If you wish to use
