Bahraini protesters, police clash; several injured

Press TV

Several people have been injured in clashes between anti-government protesters and Bahraini regime forces in the Persian Gulf country.

Clashes erupted in the early hours of Friday in several villages including Diraz near the capital Manama. Saudi-backed regime forces fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse demonstrators protesting against the ruling Al Khalifa family.

Carrying banners that read as “We will remove you (King) Hamad,” the protesters responded with Molotov cocktails.

On Thursday, regime forces attacked Imam Sadiq (A) Mosque in Salmabad village and completely destroyed the doors and windows of the holy place.

This comes ahead of a planned anti-regime protest on August 14, the date marking the withdrawal of British forces from the Persian Gulf island in 1971.
