Al-Jazeera Video: Bahrain cracks down abroad

"Bahrain's authorities have cancelled the scholarships of several students who have demonstrated against the government in Britain.

Students in the UK now face the prospect of having to return home at the end of the summer, once they are unable to pay tuition fees for the next academic year.

The Bahraini Embassy in London says the decisions are not final and affect a relatively small number of students, but Bahraini opposition groups in the UK say they know of at least 35 students who have been affected and expect many more to come forward.

Charlie Angela reports."
