A prominent Bahraini political activist rapped the Arab Union and its allies for keeping mum on the suppression of popular protests in the tiny Persian Gulf country, describing it as shameful.

"The dissident political activists in Bahrain seek to start a revolution and they lambast the Arab Union and its allies' shameful silence on the continued suppression of the Bahraini nation," Esmayeel al-Alawi told FNA on Monday.

He expressed regret that the al-Khalifa regime is now insulting the Bahrainis and their sanctities and this has caused increased protests by the Bahraini nation who do not accept to retreat from their position.

In a relevant development on Saturday, Bahraini forces once again attacked two separate demonstrations held to commemorate two protesters killed during anti-regime rallies in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom.

On Saturday evening, scores of people took to the streets on the island of Sitra, situated about 12 kilometers (7 miles) Southeast of the capital, Manama, as well as the village of al-Akr, located 32 kilometers (20 miles) South of the capital, to pay tribute to the two slain protesters and demand justice for them, Albawaba news reported.

The participants carried portraits of the two Bahraini marchers killed at the hands of regime forces as well as Bahrain’s national flags, chanting slogans in condemnation of the ruling Al Khalifa dynasty.

Security guards then intervened and fired tear gas canisters to break up the protests and disperse the demonstrators.

Anti-regime protesters have been holding demonstrations on the streets of Bahrain since mid-February 2011, calling for the Al Khalifa family to relinquish power.

The ongoing heavy-handed crackdown on peaceful demonstrations has left scores of Bahrainis dead and hundreds of others injured.
