Another Bahraini revolutionary has been martyred due to inhalation of tear gas fired by Saudi-backed forces near the capital Manama.
Activists found the body of Ja’far Jassim Radhi at his home on Saturday. The 41-year-old is the latest victim of the regime’s deadly crackdown on opposition protests over the past year.
On Friday, Bahrainis held a demonstration south of Manama to condemn the regime’s suppression of protests on the first anniversary of the Saudi-backed crackdown.
Scores of people have been killed in the crackdown on anti-regime demonstrations that broke out in February 2011, while thousands more have been arrested.
The protesters are demanding justice for the victims of the violence and the ouster of the Al Khalifa regime.
