Bahraini forces attack mourners

Several mourners were injured on Thursday when regime forces attacked people who had gathered in the town of Aali, just outside the capital city of Manama, to mourn the death of a man killed on Wednesday night in an anti-regime protest. 

Meanwhile, several protests broke out in several towns and villages across Bahrain to protest the continued deadly crackdown of protesters in the country. 

The latest death comes after an independent probe accused the Manama regime of using brutality to quell protests. 

Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry chief Cherif Bassiouni presented a summary of the 500-page report at King Hamads palace in Manama on Wednesday, saying the ruling Al Khalifa regime had used excessive force in handling the months-long protests in the country. 

The commission established by the Saudi-backed Bahraini rulers in June was to investigate reports of human rights violations committed by regime forces during the suppression of demonstrations. 

The commission has urged the Bahraini government to revise verdicts handed down to protesters in military courts and set up a compensation fund for victims of the crackdown. 

Following the release of the report, King Hamad admitted to the use of “excessive force” by his regime forces against the protesters, and promised reforms that would “satisfy” all parties in the country. 

Forces loyal to the Al Khalifa ruling family have killed scores of people and arrested hundreds of protesters since the eruption of anti-regime protests in mid-February. 

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates deployed military equipment and troops to Bahrain in mid-March upon a request from Manama to help quash nationwide protests in the country. 

The ruling Al Khalifah regime was founded in Bahrain with British backing in 1820. 

The Persian Gulf kingdom hosts the Fifth Fleet of the United States Navy.
