UNITED NATIONS (AFP) - UN chief Ban Ki-moon called on Bahrain's influential crown prince to uphold international rights norms in dealing with opposition protests, a UN spokesman said Saturday. Ban met with Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa and the Gulf state's FM Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmad Al-Khalifa at the UN headquarters late Friday, two days after the ending of a state of emergency during which protests were violently put down. Police dispersed a small group of demonstrators in Bahrain on Friday. "The secretary general reiterated his call on the government and security forces in Bahrain to uphold international human rights norms," said UN spokeswoman.
