TEHRAN, YJC.-- Saudi-backed regime forces in Bahrain have attacked protesters in the capital Manama and the northwestern village of al-Diraz.
On Monday, security forces used shotguns and poisonous gas to disperse crowds of anti-regime protesters in the capital.

In the village of al-Diraz, security forces also cracked down on the funeral procession of Abdul Ghani al-Reis who died after his son was abducted and tortured by regime forces.

Al-Reis died of psychological shock after visiting a torture chamber where his son was being kept.

In March 2011, the Bahraini regime launched a brutal crackdown on peaceful protests that erupted in February of the same year, and called in Saudi-led Arab forces from neighboring states to help crush the popular uprising.

Security forces have since killed scores of people and arrested hundreds, including doctors and nurses accused of treating injured protesters.

Bahrainis say they will continue holding street protests until their demand for the establishment of a democratically-elected government is met.
