Bahrain's Justice Ministry has asked a court to suspend the activities of the main Shiite opposition group, a move that could set back any efforts to restart reconciliation talks in the Gulf kingdom.The move comes ahead of national elections expected later this year, which the opposition had threatened to boycott.Sheikh Salman, the secretary-general of Al-Wefaq, said his group had not been officially notified of any legal action.Bahrain's opposition parties say they will boycott the elections unless the government guarantees the vote will reflect the will of the people.
