Bahrain's authorities have not yet considered imposing a ban on travel to Iran for its citizens despite tensions in relations between the countries, Minister of Information Affairs Isa Hamadi said Monday.

"Restrictions on visits to Iran are not being imposed at the moment," the minister said at a press conference.

Bahrain, along with Saudi Arabia and Sudan announced the cutting of diplomatic ties with Iran following attacks on the Saudi embassy in Tehran and the consulate in Mashhad triggered by Saturday's execution of 47 people by Riyadh, including a prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.

Following the incident, Riyadh announced the termination of flights to Tehran, as well as reduction of trade and other restrictive measures.

Many people living in Bahrain profess Shia Islam, have Iranian origin and relatives in the country.
