Bahraini regime forces attack, injure protesters in Sitra

Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have launched fresh attacks against anti-regime protesters and injured several people in the northeastern island of Sitra.

The security forces used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters on Saturday.

The angry protesters chanted slogans against the Al Khalifa regime.

Anti-regime demonstrations continue in Bahrain despite a heavy-handed crackdown backed by Saudi Arabia.

Bahraini protesters have been holding the demonstrations since February 2011 and they hold King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa responsible for the death of demonstrators during the uprising.

The protesters say they will continue holding street demonstrations until their demand for the establishment of a democratically elected government is met.

The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) has stated that the Manama regime has failed to make good on a promise to implement political reforms in the country.
