Saudi Cables in Relation to Bahrain

Wikileaks released about 500,000 top secret documents from the Saudi government that consists correspondence between the country’s official bodies and other governments around the world.

As an editor of Global Voices Check Desk, I am tracking these documents and posting them on a story that is constantly updated as we go through more documents.
