Saudi-backed Bahraini regime forces have arrested at least eight people in an attack on a funeral ceremony in the countryâ€™s third largest city, Muharraq.
The people had gathered in the city on Tuesday to mourn the death of a young Bahraini man who was beaten to death by the regime forces.
Sixteen-year-old Husam al-Haddad was killed on August 17 during an attack by Bahraini forces on a peaceful demonstration in the city.
On Tuesday, the regime forces set several checkpoints on the roads leading to Muharraq and tried to prevent mourners from visiting Haddadâ€™s grave.
They used tear gas to disperse the protesters and arrested a number of them.
Anti-regime protests continue in Bahrain despite heavy-handed crackdown by regime forces.
Scores of people have been killed by Bahraini regime forces since a popular uprising erupted against the ruling Al Khalifa family in February 2011.
The protesters hold King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa responsible for the deaths of demonstrators during the uprising.
