Protestors hold banners picturing the victims of Manama crackdown as Bahraini Crown Prince Shekh Salman bin Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa arrives in Sanabis
Bahraini Crown Prince Sheikh Salman bin Hamad has been confronted by a group of anti-government protesters during his visit to the Manama suburb of Sanabis.

Scores of protesters holding banners picturing the victims of the Manama crackdown on demonstrations gathered outside a mosque in Sanabis on Wednesday after Sheikh Salman arrived there to attend a funeral ceremony.

They also shouted “Down with Al Khalifa”. There were no reports of violence.

Bahrainis have been holding protest rallies across the country since last year, demanding freedom and the fall of the ruling regime. They also want the release of all political prisoners, including opposition leader Hassan Mushaima and prominent human rights activists Andulhadi al-Khawaja, who has been on hunger strike for more than two months.

Scores of people have also been killed and many others have been injured in the Saudi-backed crackdown on peaceful protesters in Bahrain.

Bahraini demonstrators hold King Hamad Al Khalifa responsible for the killings during the popular uprising in the country.
