The Saudi Arabian National Guard sent into Bahrain to crush a popular uprising receives training from the British military, it was reported today.
The training including weapons and public order are organised by the British Military Mission to the Saudi Arabian National Guard, according to documents obtained by The Observer under the Freedom of Information Act.
The secretive group is said to consist of 11 British army staff under the command of a brigadier.
The disclosure, which provoked criticism from human rights campaigners, comes amid criticism that the Government has not been as tough in tackling the Bahraini and Syrian ruling regimes as it has in taking on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in Libya.
