The row started when Culture Minister Shaikha Mai bint Mohammed Al Khalifa slammed protests organised by Islamist groups against the Spring of Culture festival.

She branded protesters at one rally, in which children were allegedly used to hurl stones at concertgoers on Monday, as "mercenaries".

It happened near the Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research, in Muharraq, which is close to a mosque.
