Clinton urges peaceful resolution to Bahrain unrest

CAIRO (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday she had told Saudi Arabia's foreign minister that dialogue was needed to bring about a peaceful resolution to unrest in Bahrain.

"Our advice to all sides is that they must take steps now to negotiate toward a political resolution. The security issues are obviously important, because there has to be an environment of stabilty and security in order for these talks to proceed," Clinton said, speaking in Cairo one day after Saudi troops intervened in Bahrain to quell protests.
