The Bahraini Interior Ministry has announced that two protesters have died in police custody after alleged physical abuse by Bahraini security forces.

The ministry said the body of Rashid Zakaria Hassan, 40, was found in a detention

The ministry also identified the other man as Ali Isa Saqer, 31. Officials allege that Saqer had attempted to “murder” policemen by trying to run them over with his car and had hit one protester.

According to Bahraini officials, Saqer "created chaos at the detention center" and eventually died in a hospital of injuries he sustained in clashes with prison guards.

However, human rights activists believe both men were subjected to physical and mental abuse and might have died as a result, and the opposition party Al-Wefaq said the deaths occurred under "mysterious circumstances."

Manama has been conducting a brutal crackdown on protesters with the help of some of the Persian Gulf state's Arab neighbors -- led by Saudi Arabia.

Bahraini protesters have been demanding an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty since February 14.

Human Rights Watch has expressed concern over the rise in human rights abuses committed by the Bahraini regime against its citizens.

Maryam al-Khawaja of the Bahrain Center of Human Rights told Press TV on Saturday that Bahrain has detained nearly 800 protesters, including at least 25 women.

Hassan was detained on April 2 on charges of "inciting hatred, publishing false news, promoting sectarianism and calling for overthrowing of the regime" on social networking sites, the Interior Ministry said.
