A UK-based Bahraini activist has criticised former Scotland Yard counter-terrorism chief John Yates after he suggested
he felt safer in protest-riven Bahrain than he did in London. .....
London-based Bahraini pro-democracy campaigner Ali Mushaima warned that there could be no guarantees for the Formula 1 teams' safety if the race goes ahead.
Mr Mushaima, 29, has been on hunger strike since April 4 and has spent the last two nights protesting outside the US Embassy in London's Grosvenor Square.
He said: "The people are very angry. I don't think that the area will be safe.
"If the Bahraini people don't feel safe in their country, they cannot give any foreign people guarantees to be safe when Formula 1 comes to Bahrain.
"The Bahraini people are peaceful. However, if Formula 1 comes to Bahrain, I don't know what will happen - but I don't think everything will be peaceful."
