bahrain fource5Anti-regime protesters have taken to the streets of Bahrain to mark the third anniversary of their uprising against the Al Khalifa regime.

Rallies were held in towns and villages across the tiny Persian Gulf country on Sunday and people from all walks of life

"> attended them.


The march, which is the second in a week of peaceful demonstrations in Bahrain, is expected to be the largest one in months.


On Friday, protesters held a demonstration in the predominantly Shia village of Bani Jamrah in the northwest while several other protests were also staged in the village of A'ali, south of the capital Manama, and in the northeastern island of Sitra.


Saudi-backed security forces used tear gas against the demonstrators in Bani Jamrah and Sitra.
On Saturday, human rights defenders staged a rally in front of the Bahraini Embassy in London to express solidarity with the Bahraini people.


Since mid-February 2011, thousands of pro-democracy protesters have held numerous demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain, calling for the Al Khalifa royal family to relinquish power.


On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates invaded the country to assist the Bahraini regime in its crackdown on peaceful protesters.


According to local sources, scores of people have been killed and hundreds arrested.
Physicians for Human Rights say doctors and nurses have been detained, tortured, or disappeared because they have "evidence of atrocities committed by the authorities, security forces, and riot police" in the crackdown on anti-government protesters.
