Description

Anti-regime protests continue in Bahrain in the face of Manama’s intensified attempts to silence its critics. Bahraini protesters took to the streets on the eastern island of Sitra and in the northeastern village of Samaheej. Protesters waved flags and chanted slogans in solidarity with students jailed over participation in anti-regime rallies. The demonstrators praised the detainees' resistance as sacred. The protests come ahead of the start of the new school year in the Persian Gulf kingdom. Dozens of people have been killed in the Al Khalifa regime’s ongoing crackdown on pro-democracy protests since 2011. Thousands of others, among them doctors, teachers and students, have also been detained by security forces.
