bahrain esmaeeliThousands of Bahrainis have rallied near the capital to mark the second anniversary of the revolution against the ruling Al Khalifa family. The demonstration was held on the Budaiya highway, which links several villages with the capital, Manama, on Friday. It was organized by Bahrain’s main opposition bloc al-Wefaq.

    They also held funeral services for the latest victim of the regime’s crackdown on protest; the 16-year-old Hussein al-Jaziri who was shot dead on Thursday after security forces attacked anti-regime protesters in the village of Daih.


Witnesses said Saudi-backed Bahraini forces used tear gas and sound bombs to disperse the Friday protest. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Bahrainis held mass anti-regime rallies also on Thursday coinciding with the actual anniversary of the start of the revolution on February 14, 2011.

Bahrainis say they will continue holding demonstrations until their demands for the establishment of a democratically-elected government and an end to rights violations are met.
