Stun rounds used on Bahraini protestersBahraini regime forces have fired stun rounds and tear gas to disperse anti-government protesters in several villages across the countr

On Tuesday, demonstrators chanted slogans against the Al Khalifa regime. 

In addition to the demonstrations, laid-off Bahraini workers once again gathered outside the Interior Ministry in the capital, Manama on Tuesday, to demand
reinstatement. 

Dozens of people have been killed and thousands more have been arrested or fired from their jobs in Bahrain since the beginning of the uprising in February. 

State media announced on Saturday that Bahraini authorities had dropped charges relating to the freedom of expression against “343 individual suspects in 34 cases” linked to anti-regime demonstrations in February and March. 

However, Matar Matar, a member of the main opposition group, al-Wefaq, censured the announcement, saying that it is “a media show.” 

Al-Wefaq said on Friday that Bahraini security forces had attacked the headquarters of the group, located west of the capital, using tear gas and rubber bullets. Several people, including children, were injured in the attack, the group added. 

Last week, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay called on Bahraini authorities to “urgently take confidence-building measures including unconditionally releasing those who were convicted in military tribunals or are still awaiting trial for merely exercising their fundamental rights to freedom of expression and assembly.” 

Bahraini anti-regime protesters have expressed their determination to support “the cause of the martyrs of the revolution” despite a decision by King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa to “invite all parties, including the opposition, to post an adviser in his office to monitor the reconciliation and reform process.”
