Thousands of Bahrainis demand freedom for opposition leaders

Thousands of Bahraini protesters took to the street on Friday following central prayer in Duraz, west of the capital Manama.

The protesters also stressed the necessary need for a democratically elected government in a state that respects equal citizenship and human rights.

Similar rallies were also held in the village of Musalla, located west of the capital, and in Bilad al-Qadim, a suburb of Manama.

Al Khalifa regime forces reportedly used teargas and stun grenades to disperse the protesters.

Bahrain has been seeing day-and-night protests marching numerous areas across the country despite official attempts to silence the people through the use of force, arrests and politically motivated trials.

Salman was arrested on December 28, 2014, on charges of seeking regime change and collaborating with foreign powers. Al-Wefaq has rejected the charges as malicious and outright lies.

The arrest triggered massive condemnations both inside and outside the monarchy, with leaders, governments and international organizations across the world calling for his immediate release.

Since mid-February 2011, thousands of protesters have held numerous rallies in the streets of Bahrain, calling for the Al Khalifa royal family to relinquish power.
