SHAFAQNA – Bahraini forces backed with Saudi troops have attacked Shia mourners marking the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Prophet Mohammad. Regime forces roamed the streets of Nuwaidrat in armored vehicles and fired tear gas to disperse mourners marking Ashura. Over the past years, the Bahraini regime has been using brute force against Shias demanding more freedom. So far, over a hundred people have been killed in the heavy-handed crackdown. Thousands more have been detained, many of them still in custody.
