Bahrain marchers protest cleric's execution
Bahrain marchers protest cleric's execution


Police in Bahrain have fired birdshot and used water cannons to push back demonstrators protesting Saudi Arabia over its execution of a Shia cleric.



The protest occurred on Sunday on Sitra Island, south of Bahrain's capital, Manama. The demonstrators numbered into the hundreds and chanted that Nimr al-Nimr is "our martyr."



Hundreds also marched in al-Daih, west of Manama, chanting slogans against Saudi Arabia's ruling Al Saud family and the Sunni family ruling Bahrain.



The protests erupted after Saudi Arabia on Saturday announced it had executed al-Nimr. Bahrain's Interior Ministry announced on Sunday it had arrested "several rioters and vandals ... along with a small number of people who misused social media for illegal purposes" over the protests, according to AP. - Idrak
