MANAMA, Aug. 19 (NNN-Xinhua) -- Businessmen in Bahrain have sought the country's Interior Ministry to intervene and stop rioters from blocking roads and damaging their properties as the action has " resulted in massive losses for them."

Bahraini Minister of State for Information Affairs, Sameera Rajab, said in a press conference on Saturday that there were three separate incidents that took place earlier this year.

"These specific incidents are reported to have caused riot, road block, fire and destruction of public and private property. These acts of incitement have compromised public order and the safety of citizens by using petrol bombs and other improvised weapons. They also assault police officers, leaving a number of them injured," said the minister.

The terror acts have "direct negative impact on economic and commercial activity," which prompted proprietors and businesses owners to request intervention from the Interior Ministry to protect their interests. -- NNN-Xinhua
