VIDEO: Massive Rallies in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain in Condemnation of Sheikh Nimr Execution

Massive protests have erupted in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province in condemnation of the execution of Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi regime, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Nimr’s execution has sparked outrage and condemnation across the world, drawing people to the streets in countries including in Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Lebanon. People have also taken to the streets in the Saudi Eastern Province’s Qatif region in protest against the cleric’s execution.

German and British officials have also condemned the execution of the prominent Cleric.

A critic of the Riyadh regime, Sheikh Nimr was arrested by Saudi police in Qatif in 2012. He was charged with instigating unrest and undermining the kingdom’s security, making anti-government speeches and defending political prisoners. He had rejected all the charges as baseless.

Saudi Arabia, which has been under pressure for its human rights violations over the past years, executed more than 150 people in 2015.
