Bahrain opposition suspends parliament role

Bahrain's Shi'ite opposition bloc Wefaq suspended its membership in parliament on Tuesday after two villagers were killed in clashes with police, a parliamentarian from the bloc said.

"This is the first step. We want to see dialogue," said Ibrahim Mattar, a Wefaq parliamentarian. "In the coming days, we are either going to resign from the council or continue."
