Bahrain Mirror: A Bahraini official announced on Saturday (June 17, 2017) the cancellation of the UN High Commission for Human Rights' invitation to visit the country, without giving clear reasons.
"For technical and logistical reasons, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights' (OHCHR) visit to Bahrain has been postponed until further notice," said Assistant Foreign Minister Abdullah Al-Dosari on his Twitter account.
