Manama cracks down on demonstrations against death sentences

Bahraini forces have heavy-handedly cracked down on protests which broke out after the Manama regime sentenced six people to death over terrorism charges.

Bahraini troops used teargas to suppress a demonstration which was held in the village of Diraz by mostly female protesters on Monday.

Earlier, Bahrain military court handed down the sentences and revoked the six people’s citizenship for “forming a terror cell, attempting to assassinate Commander-in-Chief Field Marshal Sheikh Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifah and committing other acts of terror.”
