The prosecution had ordered the release of the head of the opposition Al-Wefaq bloc after he had been summoned on Saturday, but “forbade him from any travel for the purposes of the investigation,” he added. During his questioning, Salman had been asked about the content of a speech he gave on Friday. The attorney general said Salman was charged with “inciting hatred against a religious community” in the Sunni Muslim-ruled country during the address. He was also alleged to have “accused institutions of the state of engaging in illegal practices”. The speech was followed by “disturbances, acts of violence and aggression against the security forces that caused injuries in their ranks,” the chief prosecutor added. Six opposition groups including Al-Wefaq have issued a statement denouncing Salman’s detention as an “attack on freedom of expression in Bahrain”. Al-Wefaq, the most important opposition grouping in Shiite-majority Bahrain, wants a constitutional monarchy in the Gulf nation ruled by the Al-Khalifa dynasty. It repeatedly says it rejects violence, but the authorities in turn blame its supporters for the trouble.

Sun Travel gets military contract
They did, and with Travco came the Defense Department small business set-aside contract to handle travel for four Air Force bases in Montana, Idaho, Utah and Washington. Paul Coleman says Sun Travel has survived the sea change in the industry as people began making their own travel arrangements on the Internet by offering great service to customers planning complicated vacation trips and cruises. Over half of Sun Travels sales are still in airline tickets for business and personal travelers. Its service after the sale, he said. If you have a problem before, during or after your trip, you have a professional who can jump in and help. We have 24/7 emergency travel service so if youre stranded by weather or a disaster, were available to help. And going through a travel agent will still get you the lowest travel, hotel and car rental prices, he says, because of the relationships travel agencies have with vendors, including airlines and hotel chains. The Internets not going to call you back and tell you if the fare for your flights gone down, Coleman said. We also have the ability to unblock seats. In the mid-1990s, travel agencies were hit hard when airlines began cutting back the commissions they had paid agencies for booking flights.
