Rallies Erupted in Saudi, Bahrain to Condemn Death Sentence against Sheikh Nimr

Sheik Nimr Protests

Rallies erupted last night in Saudi and Bahrain to condemn the decision of the criminal court in Riyadh which issued a sentence death against Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.

The security forces responded by launching live bullets directly onto the protestors who took to the streets of many cities including al-Awamiyah and al-Qatif in eastern Saudi and Sutra island in Bahrain, rejecting the “unjust sentence” and demanding the release of Sheikh al-Nimr.
