Funeral of the Shia Teenage Boy Martyred by Security forces also attacked


Bahraini Youth Protest against the Death of the Young Protester BoyJNN 27 May 2014 Manama : Bahraini security forces have attacked the funeral of a teenage protester who was shot martyred earlier this week.

According to Press TV, regime troops used tear gas on Saturday to disperse the mourners in the village of Sitra, south of the capital Manama.

Fourteen-year-old Seyed Mahmood Seyed Mohsen was martyred by security forces during a demonstration on Wednesday.

He is one of the latest victims of brutal crackdown by the Al Khalifa regime against pro-democracy protests.

Prominent Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab has called for serious dialog between Al Khalifa regime and opposition leaders.

“The only solution is a serious dialogue between the royal family and the opposition [al-Wefaq movement],” said Rajab, who heads the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights.

Rajab who was released on Saturday after serving a two-year jail term, said Bahrain’s situation today is worse compared to when he went to prison because of an upsurge in violence.

According to Press TV, he also said he still supports peaceful demonstrations, but is against violence. Rajab was detained for his role in pro-democracy protests which erupted in Bahrain in 2011.

Nabeel Rajab has led numerous demonstrations, and is a strong critic of the Al Khalifa regime for its crackdown. The activist is also critical of the US role in crushing Bahrain’s protests.

Amnesty International as well as Human Rights Watch (HRW) had repeatedly urged the Bahraini regime to free Rajab and other activists.

Since mid-February 2011, thousands of anti-regime protesters have held numerous demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain, calling for the ruling Al Khalifa family to relinquish power.

Scores of people have been martyred and hundreds of others injured and arrested in the Manama regime’s ongoing crackdown on peaceful demonstrations.
