The Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) announced that the Al Khalifa regime forces have arrested 17 citizens of the Persian Gulf country, including a child, on political grounds.

“From April 3 to April 9, 2017, BCHR documented a total of 17 arbitrary arrests, among them 1 child in Bahrain,” the BCHR said on its twitter account.

“From April 3 to April 9, 2017, a total of 37 marches took place in 22 villages in Bahrain. 6 marches were attacked by the riot police,” the human rights body twitted.

Bahrain, a close ally of the US in the Persian Gulf region, has been witnessing almost daily protests against the ruling Al Khalifa dynasty since early 2011, with Manama using heavy-handed measures in an attempt to crush the demonstrations.

Scores of Bahrainis have been killed and hundreds of others injured and arrested in the ongoing crackdown on the peaceful demonstrations.

Amnesty International and many other international rights organizations have frequently censured the Bahraini regime for the rampant human rights abuses against opposition groups and anti-regime protesters.
