Bahrainis rally in solidarity with martyrs

Bahrainis have staged several rallies across the Persian Gulf kingdom in solidarity with the activists killed at the hands of Manama regime forces.

The protesters took to the streets in the villages of Musalla, Buri, Diraz and Sanabis on Monday evening, chanting slogans against the Al Khalifah regime.

They were also carrying photos of the victims of the regime’s crackdown, including Mohammed Sahwan who died in Manama’s custody last week.

Bahrain’s Interior Ministry announced the death of the 45-year-old prisoner in a Tweet on March 16, citing “natural causes.” Sahwan was serving a 15-year sentence at Jaw prison for taking part in anti-regime demonstrations.

The demonstrators on Monday called on Manama to bring those behind the killings to justice, vowing to continue their protests until their demands are met.

Bahraini regime forces fired toxic gas to break up the gatherings in Sanabis and on Sitra Island, south of the capital, Manama, on Monday.

Anti-regime protests have been held on an almost daily basis ever since the popular uprising roared into life in 2011.
