Bahraini Opposition leaders ‘tortured’


Arrested Bahraini opposition leaders have been reportedly tortured amid crushing of the anti-government protests by Bahraini forces.

Riot police in the Persian Gulf country besieged the town of Karzakkan on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, al-Malikiyah village is under the siege of Bahraini pro-regime thugs.

On Monday, Saudi-backed Bahraini forces arrested clerics Sayyed Mohammad al-Alawi and Sheikh Abdul Adim al-Mohtadi in the capital Manama.

People in Bahrain have been protesting since February 14, demanding an end to the two-century-long rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

Demonstrators maintain that they will hold their ground until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.

Scores of protesters have been killed and many others gone missing since the beginning of the revolution.

Bahraini forces have reinforced a massive armed crackdown on the uprising with the help of Saudi, the UAE and Kuwaiti troops.
