The US government approved $200 million in military sales from American firms to Bahrain last year, according to a State Department report.

The annual report, which provides totals of US-authorized arms sale agreements between American defense firms and foreign governments, showed a $112 million (BD42 million) rise in licensed defense sales to Bahrain between the 2009 and 2010 fiscal years, according to Gulf Daily News (GDN).

The US approved $88 million in military exports to Bahrain in 2009. Much of the flow of military hardware to Bahrain was for aircraft and military electronics, but the US also licensed $760,000 in exports of rifles, shotguns and assault weapons in 2010.
