Bahrainis Remain Steadfast in Face of Regime’s Oppression
The families of the five Bahraini martyrs, who fell during the regime crackdown on Diraz sit-in on Tuesday, demanded that the authorities hand in the noble corpses to them.
Human rights watchdogs expressed worries about the possibility that the regime hides the real reasons of the death of the five martyrs.
The Al-Bawaba news website said that Bahraini protesters have defied Manama’s warning against holding more public gatherings and stayed on the streets in a show of anger against the regime’s bloody crackdown on Diraz, the home village of prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Issa Qassem.
In a different context, a Bahrain court sentenced 17 men to jail terms ranging from several years to life imprisonment on alleged charges of forming a ‘terrorist cell’.
