Anti-Regime Protests Continue in Bahrain (+Video)

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Protests continued for the third day in Bahrain after the execution of two Shiite activists over the weekend in the country.

According to Reuters, Police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of demonstrators in Bilad al-Qadeem suburb where one protester died from gas inhalation on Saturday, four activists said.

Protesters chanted slogans against the ruling Al Khalifa regime as they took to the streets in several villages and neighborhoods on the outskirts of the capital Manama on Monday night.

Meanwhile, pictures posted on social media accounts of Bahrini activists showed mass demonstrations in the district of Bani Hamra.

Bahraini people have been holding protest rallies since Saturday, when the Al Khalifa regime executed Ahmad al-Malali, 24, and Ali Hakim al-Arab, 25.

The activists had been sentenced to death last year in a mass trial along with 56 other men who were convicted and given jail terms on "terrorism crimes."

The Manama regime carried out the death penalties despite fierce protests by the United Nations and several human rights groups.
