YERUSHALAYIM – Bahrain has agreed to allow a delegation of Israeli journalists to cover next week’s economic workshop in the capital Manama, at the behest of the United States.

Six representatives from Israeli news organizations will be permitted entry into the country, even though it has no formal diplomatic relations with Israel.
