The United States has delivered three coastal patrol boats to the Bahraini Coast Guard, the US Embassy in Manama confirmed on 7 October.

It said David Pekoske, the acting deputy secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security, had visited the three boats at Muharraq Coast Guard Base and released a photograph showing a Response Boat - Medium (RB-M) moored at the facility.

"The three boats are the first delivery of a six-boat USD30 million order paid for in full by the US government," Gulf Daily News quoted a US embassy statement as saying. "A second delivery of three additional boats is planned for February."
