bah88Bahraini security forces have fired tear gas at houses during a crackdown on anti-regime protesters near the capital, Manama.

In the village of Sanabis, about 5.5 kilometers (3.5 miles) west of the capital, security forces reportedly chased a group

of young demonstrators and fired toxic tear gas at them. Police even fired tear gas canisters inside the houses of some of the protesters during the chase.

Elsewhere in the village of Nabih Saleh, south of Manama, there was a demonstration held by a group of women, who chanted slogans against the ruling Al Khalifa regime.

In the western village of Shahrakan, a number of youth protested against an earlier attack on a holy shrine by regime forces.

The uprising in Bahrain began in mid-February 2011. Protesters initially called for political reforms and a constitutional monarchy. However, the demand later changed to an outright call for the ouster of the Al Khalifa family following its brutal crackdown on popular protests.

On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were called in to assist the Bahraini regime in its crackdown on the peaceful protests.

Scores of people have been killed in the crackdown, and security forces have arrested hundreds, including doctors and nurses. Dozens of demonstrators have also been sentenced to jail terms for attending street protests.

Physicians for Human Rights says doctors and nurses have been detained, tortured, or have disappeared because they have “evidence of atrocities committed by the authorities, security forces, and riot police” in the crackdown.
