Bahraini forces raid high school, fire tear gas

Moqawama

Bahraini security forces have raided a high school in the capital, Manama, firing tear gas at the students angry over the arrest of a fellow student.

Photos published by al-Wefaq opposition party demonstrate tear gas inside the al-Jabiriya high school. According to al-Wefaq, chaos dominated the scene as Interior ministry personals closed the gates of the school to prevent the students from leaving. This took place in response to a peaceful protest the students had organized against the detention of 17 year-old student Hassan Reda Hmaidan, who was arrested Monday morning in school.
