Bahraini police clash with protesters near Manama

Press TV

Bahraini police forces have clashed with anti-regime demonstrators protesting against the killing of a young activist.

On Wednesday, Saudi-backed security forces fired tear gas at the protesters near the capital Manama.

The demonstrators pelted the police forces with rocks and petrol bombs in response.

The protest was held on the third day after the death of 20-year-old activist Sadiq Sabt, who spent about a month in coma.

According to reports, Sabt was deliberately run over by a car on July 30.

Earlier in the day, Bahraini Justice Minister Sheik Khalid bin Ali Al Khalifa issued a decree, which restricts contacts between political groups and foreign diplomats, a move that further limits Shia activists in the Persian Gulf state.
