Bahrain's main opposition Shiite group formally announced Saturday it will boycott the country's upcoming November parliamentary elections.

In a news conference, Al-Wefaq and three other groups in the National Democratic Opposition Parties said they will boycott elections because they say the government has not engaged in genuine reconciliation efforts. Al-Wefaq leaders previously warned on numerous occasions they would boycott.
