shiitenews_Bahrainis_condemnHundreds of students have reportedly quit the University of Bahrain to protest against the ruling regime's brutal crackdown on their anti-government peers.

Students say they left classrooms due to the government's so-called protection measures and tight security at the campus.

Classes at the University of Bahrain resumed a couple of days ago after authorities installed new surveillance cameras across the university.
The facility was ransacked around two months ago during the unrest that has gripped the Persian Gulf state for over three months.

All students must now re-register with the university and sign a code of conduct. Each student is given a compulsory identification card that must be worn at all times on campus.

According to Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights (BYSHR), the University of Bahrain is planning to accept only pro-government students and those refusing to sign a pledge of loyalty to the government will be expelled from the only national higher education institution in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom.

Since the beginning of anti-regime protests in Bahrain in mid-February, Manama has launched a harsh crackdown on anti-government protesters, rounding up senior opposition figures and activists in dawn raids and arresting doctors, nurses, lawyers and journalists who have voiced support for the protest movement.

Scores of protesters have been killed and many others have gone missing ever since the protests broke out.

Bahrainis condemn death sentences

Hundreds of Bahrainis have poured into the streets across the country to protest against the death sentences handed to two anti-government protesters.

The opposition has condemned the verdict describing it as a political move aimed at suppressing the anti-government movement.

On Sunday, a military court upheld the death sentences for two anti-government protesters for their involvement in the killing of two police officers during anti-regime demonstrations.

"The National Safety Appeals Court upheld the death sentence Sunday against Ali Abdullah Hasan al-Singace and Abdul Aziz Abdullah Ibrahim Hussein," BNA reported.

Rallies in support of the two anti-government protesters were held in the villages of Karrana and some other towns and villages across the tiny Persian Gulf Sheikhdom on Monday.

While the whereabouts of many detainees are still unknown, Bahraini authorities have began to try a number of detained activists in what opposition calls kangaroo courts.

Protesters have been charged with several counts, including attempting to overthrow the monarchy. They are being tried in a special security court set up under martial law.

Rights groups and the families of those arrested during the government crackdown on protesters have blamed Bahraini security authorities for mistreating anti-government protesters, saying they are being abused physically and mentally.

At least four detained activists died under torture while in police custody.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have bitterly criticized the Persian Gulf sheikhdom's government for its brutal crackdown on civilians.

The International Committee of the Red Cross, which visits detainees in conflict situations, has been trying to see and contact detained Bahraini activists since mid-March. But so far Manama has refused to grant it permission.
