Bahrain said on Thursday it had recalled its envoy to Iraq after protesters stormed its embassy in Baghdad and took down its flag to protest a US-sponsored conference in Manama on Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Baghdad police used live rounds to disperse the crowd but no injuries were reported.

The incident, which lasted an hour, led to 25 people being detained.

He also revealed that 54 people were arrested in connection with the attack and that the minister will appoint a committee to investigate the incident and the individuals responsible for ensuring the safety and security of the embassy and its staff.

One protester, who identified himself as a member of the Islamic Resistance Groups, a term usually used by Iranian-backed militias, said they wanted to send a strong statement over the meeting in Manama, Bahrain's capital.

"We are ready to fight for this".

Iraq's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmad al-Sahhaf told The Associated Press that Baghdad condemns the attack on the embassy adding that "Iraqi authorities will go after those who took part of the attack as well as the instigators".

US President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner on Wednesday launched a long-awaited Middle East initiative with a two-day conference in Bahrain, where leaders touted his plan to jumpstart Palestinians' economy.

But the plan has met broad disdain from Palestinians and others in the Arab world.

"The reason why Israel, the Israeli government, and unfortunately many United States administrations keep pushing those so-called "peace processes" that are all economic projects and no real political resolutions, it comes from this perspective that they know that what is required is a political settlement that requires political compromise", Nizar Farsakh, a former member of the Palestinian negotiation team, told Sputnik on Monday.

On Thursday night, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation called the storming a blatant breach of diplomatic norms and conventions.

The ministry underlined the necessity of protecting diplomatic missions and ensuring their safety under worldwide law and the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

Iraq's newly named Interior Minister Yasssin al-Yassiri visited the compound around midnight and then held a meeting with the Bahrain ambassador in a safe place outside the embassy.

The Bahraini diplomats were evacuated earlier from the compound into the heavily fortified Green Zone that is home to the Iraqi government headquarters, after the mission received threats, the official said.
