Bahrainis hold fresh anti-regime demo


In Bahrain, anti-regime demonstrators have reportedly taken to the streets of the Persian Gulf kingdom, calling on the ruling Al Khalifa regime to relinquish power.

According to reports, the Bahraini demonstrators held an anti-regime protest rally in the northwestern village of Bani Jamra.

Reports say similar gatherings were also held in the village of Maqaba, located north of the capital, Manama.

Earlier this month, Bahrainis held protests across the country, calling for the boycott of upcoming general elections scheduled to take place next month.

Bahrain’s main opposition party al-Wefaq National Islamic Society has said the upcoming vote will be undemocratic and will only give credit to the Al Khalifa rule.

The election will be the first since protests started in Bahrain in 2011.
