Saudi Arabia to use troops against protestors

Reportedly, Saudi Arabia has mobilised its troops to cope with unrest in its north-eastern provinces as well as neighbouring Bahrain, where massive and popular protests mobilised by the Shi'ite against a Sunni monarchy persist. Saudi Arabia, whose polity is still a family-founded and Sunni-monopolised absolute monarchy, has prosribed all protests. Saudi Arabia's military actions against its own Shi'ite or against those in Bahrain would almost certainly provoke tough responses from Iran, which has declared official support for mass revolts in its neighbours.
