Dubai: The Kingdom of Bahrain on Monday published a list of 68 Islamist groups it classified as terrorist, the state news agency BNA said.

Lebanon’s Shiite Hezbollah movement, already branded as “terrorist” by the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Arab League, topped the list approved by Bahrain’s cabinet, BNA said.

Also on the list was Al Qaida and its branches in Yemen and North Africa, as well as Al Nusra Front in Syria and Daesh.

Nigeria’s Boko Haram, Egypt’s Islamic Jihad and Al Murabitoun in Mali are also on the list.

Also included are the little-known Al Ashtar Brigades and Resistance Brigades, as well as the clandestine February 14 Coalition, all believed to be groups in Bahrain.
