Saudi security forces have shot dead two a Shia Muslims, a teenager and an activist as they attacked a group of peaceful pro-democracy protesters in the city of Qatif in the Eastern Province.

Mohammad Habib al Manasif, sixteen-year-old boy was martyred on Wednesday as security forces were trying to arrest opposition activist Khaled al-Labbad, who lost his life in the assault.

Labbad was on a list of 23 people wanted by the Saudi regime. They are accused of organizing anti-regime protests in the oil-rich kingdom

Saudi Arabia’s interior ministry confirmed on Thursday that its security forces shot dead two men after they raided a house to arrest Labbad.

People are randomly arrested by the Saudi police just for looking suspicious, and are held behind bars for years before they are even charged.

According to Human Rights Watch, the Saudi regime ”routinely represses expression critical of the government.”

On August 13, Swedish Defense Minister Karin Enstrom criticized Riyadh for its human rights violations, describing Saudi Arabia as “an authoritarian regime and an absolute monarchy where serious human rights crimes are committed.”

Since February 2011, protesters have held numerous demonstrations in Saudi Arabia, mainly in Qatif and Awamiyah in the Eastern Province, to call for the release of all political prisoners, freedom of expression and assembly, and an end to widespread discrimination against Shia Muslims.
