Haj Habib Ibrahim Abdullah died on Sunday after inhaling poisonous tear gas fired at a peaceful anti-

"> regime protest in Malkiya village.

His nine-year-old grandson was also injured in the attack.

Witnesses say his funeral turned into another anti-regime protest with mourners shouting slogans against the ruling Al-Khalifah family.

Regime forces fired tear gas at peaceful mourners after they chanted anti-regime slogans, but there were no immediate reports of casualties.

Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have clashed with anti-government protesters at the funeral of a demonstrator, killed by regime forces near Manama.

The clashes broke out on Sunday after Bahraini security forces fired tear gas and birdshot to disperse peaceful protesters, who had attended the funeral of Haj Habib Ibrahim Abdullah.

The protesters called for the release of all jailed activists and demanded that King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa step down.

Since mid-February 2011, thousands of pro-democracy protesters have staged 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 the peaceful protesters.

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

Physicians for Human Rights says doctors and nurses have been detained, tortured, or disappeared because they have "evidence of atrocities committed by the authorities, security forces, and riot police" in the crackdown on anti-government protesters.
