irIranian students have staged a protest rally outside the Saudi Embassy in Tehran to condemn Riyadh's military intervention in Bahrain and the killing of Bahraini civilians.

protesters held photos of the victims killed in the brutal crackdown of the Al Khalifa regime against anti-government demonstrators.
They waved Bahraini flags and chanted slogans against the ruling dynasties in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, IRNA reported.

A number of protesters were also arrested as they hurled petrol bombs at the Saudi mission, and clashed with security forces.

Iran has strongly denounced the invasion of Bahrain by Saudi Arabia and called on 86-year-old King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz to pull out his forces from the Persian Gulf state as soon as possible.

On Monday, Saudi-backed Bahraini forces arrested clerics Sayyed Mohammad al-Alawi and Sheikh Abdul Adim al-Mohtadi in the capital Manama.

This comes after the Bahraini government dismissed 30 doctors and 150 health ministry workers for supporting anti-government protests.

Saudi Arabia dispatched thousands of troops to neighboring Bahrain in mid-March to help quell month-old protest rallies seeking to topple the Al Khalifa dynasty.

Saudi and other Arab rulers fear that any concession by Bahrain's rulers could trigger more protests against their own despotic rule.

This is while the US military, which has its Fifth Fleet based in Bahrain, has avoided describing the foreign military intervention in the country as an invasion.

Bahraini demonstrators maintain that they will hold their ground until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.

Scores of protesters have been killed and many others have gone missing since the beginning of the Bahraini revolution.
