ISIS calls for attacks on US bases in uneasy island of Bahrain


DUBAI -- The Islamic State group is calling on its followers to launch attacks in Bahrain, including those targeting American military personnel stationed on the tiny island ahead of a visit by the US defense secretary.


The appeal for violence came in a video that also urges militants to attack the Sunni-ruled island's Shiite majority amid a wider government crackdown on dissent there.


The slickly produced video surfaced as ISIS propaganda has waned as the extremists continue to lose territory in Iraq and Syria under the onslaught of a US-led coalition campaign against them. Bahrain is part of that coalition.
