The government has revoked the citizenship of 31 men for damaging national security, amid an uprising led by the Shia majority.

They include the London-based dissidents Saeed al-Shehabi and Ali Mushaima, son of the jailed opposition leader Hassan Mushaima, as well as clerics and human rights lawyers, according to the Bahrain Youth Centre for Human Rights.

In April, Ali Mushaima scaled the roof of Bahrain’s embassy in London to publicise demands for greater democracy.
