Riot police fired tear gas on the protesters in Nuwaidrat, Sanabis, Eker, and Sitra on Wednesday.

The protesters were fired at when they were shouting slogans of death to the ruling Al Khalifa family.

Anti-regime protesters have been holding demonstrations across the country since mid-February, calling on the Al Khalifa ruling family to relinquish power.

Meanwhile, an international rights group has urged Bahrain to stop harassing and intimidating reporters critical of the Saudi-backed regime.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said in a statement it had documented cases of two journalists who died while in police custody and many others being detained or tortured in Bahrain since the beginning of protests in mid-February.

"Bahrain's government has a responsibility to protect journalists from those who resort to threats of violence, intimidation, or fabricated criminal charges to influence coverage," said CPJ Middle East and North Africa Program Coordinator Mohamed Abdel Dayem.

Anti-regime protesters have been holding demonstrations across the country since mid-February, calling on the Al Khalifa ruling family to relinquish power.
