18 December 2012 22:49

Bahraini security forces have fired tear gas and stun grenades as crowds of protesters gathered in the capital Manama. Some people were injured and dozens reportedly arrested during the massive ‘Bahrain’s Martyrs Day’ demonstration.

Some locals have reported witnessing extensive use of teargas, pellet shotguns and sound bombs that have caused severe and critical injuries to protesters.
Groups of protesters gathered, chanting slogans in the narrow streets of Manama’s traditional market district. Activists also blocked public streets in preparation for a mass demonstration to mark ‘Bahrain’s Martyrs Day,’ an annual commemoration for two protesters killed in 1994.
Local witnesses reported that police made at least 25 arrests, including women.
