Large numbers of people have gathered outside the home of Bahrain’s most senior Shia cleric, Sheikh Isa Qassim, in protest to Manama’s revoking of his citizenship. Following the protests in the village of Diraz near the capital Manama, Bahraini security forces banned any manner of gathering in the village and sealed off the area around the cleric’s house. Thousands of protesters performed prayer outside the house of the revered Sheikh.
