A candlelight vigil was held this evening in front of the British Embassy to Bahrain to show solidarity with the British people, and to express our complete rejection of the terror attacks in London that took place on Thursday. It was attended by over a hundred people and was organized by a wide range of civil societies: Islamists, Leftists and human rights groups.
Update (11-Jul-05): I’ve just learned from a tip by a commenter on Natasha’s site that a similar vigil was held outside the British Embassy in Jordan. The link to the article is here. This is good news. (You can view a bunch of photos from the Jordan vigil at Yahoo News. Have a look before the links expire.)
There are lots more photos below
The British ambassador, Robin Lamb, came out to speak with some of the leaders (Shaikh Ali Salman, Murtadha Bader, Ibrahim Sharif). Everyone was quite impressed with the ambassador’s excellent Arabic skills.
Sorry for the crappy quality of the photos.
