Thousands of anti-regime protesters have taken to the streets in Bahrain, calling for an unconditional release of political prisoners.

On Friday, the pro-democracy protesters condemned the Al Khalifa regime’s human rights violations and demanded the immediate release of those in jails, during the rally in the village of Jannusan, west of the capital Manama.

The demonstrators also voiced solidarity for jailed human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja.

In 2011, Abdulhadi al-Khawaja was jailed for life on charges of plotting to overthrow the regime.

Earlier in the day, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) called on the regime to free the activist’s daughter, Maryam al-Khawaja.

On June 10, the OHCHR censured the Manama regime for human rights violations in the country. A total of 46 members of the international body expressed deep concern over the Al Khalifa regime’s crackdown on peaceful protesters.

Since mid-February 2011, thousands of pro-democracy protesters have held numerous demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain, calling for the Al Khalifa royal family to relinquish power.

On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates invaded the country to assist the Bahraini government in its crackdown on peaceful protesters.

According to local sources, scores of people have been killed.
