As it enters another day of protests, Bahrain’s web traffic is found to have declined by 20 per cent, thought to be due to the Government filtering.

The decision to filter what is being reported and said online in the Persian Kingdom is similar to the move by Egypt by its former Government, although so far Bahrain has not closed down its internet service entirely.

Web security company Abor Networks has said that the amount of data moving in-and-out of Bahrain has decreased by a fifth this week, compared to the previous three weeks, although they added that it was ‘impossible’ to tell what was being blocked or filtered.
