Bahrainis attended his funeral procession in the town of Nabih Saleh, south of Manama, with mourners shouting anti-regime slogans. Jaziri was hit in the head by a tear gas canister on February 14 after security forces attacked anti-regime demonstrators in Nabih Saleh as they were marking the second anniversary of the uprising. According to Bahrain's main opposition bloc al-Wefaq, Jaziri died in the hospital on February 22 after being in coma for a week. Reports say there were signs of torture on his body. Bahraini authorities have so far made no comments on Jaziri's death. Bahrainis have held several rallies to demand Jaziri's body over the past days. Bahrainis have been staging demonstrations since mid-February 2011, demanding political reform and a constitutional monarchy, a demand that later changed to an outright call for the ouster of the ruling Al Khalifa family following its brutal crackdown on popular protests. Scores have been killed, many of them under torture while in custody, and thousands more detained since the popular uprising in Bahrain began. Protesters, however, say they will continue holding anti-regime demonstrations until their demand for the establishment of a democratically-elected government and an end to rights violations are met.
