US says told, not consulted, on Saudi Bahrain force

PARIS, March 14 (Reuters) - The United States was informed about Saudi forces entering Bahrain just before they did so, but was not consulted on the move, a senior U.S. official said on Monday.

“We were informed just before — not consulted,” the official from U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration told reporters in Paris.
