Navideshahed: Saudi-backed Bahraini regime forces have attacked peaceful anti-government protesters in the town of Sanad, injuring at least one person.

The peaceful protest was organized on Friday to condemn the demolishing of mosques as well as the attacks on those who prayed on the sites of the demolished mosques.

The demonstrators, including women and children were attacked and beaten by Bahraini forces that used tear gas to disperse the protesters.

Meanwhile, Amnesty International has called on the regime in Manama to immediately release the prominent 52-year-old activist Abdul-Hadi al-Khawaja, who was arrested in April 2011 for leading a pro-democracy demonstration.

His life is reportedly at risk as he has been on a hunger strike for 51 days.

Bahraini troops heavily rely on tear gas and stun grenades to disperse peaceful anti-government protesters. Several Bahraini civilians, mostly senior citizens and children, have died from asphyxia.

On Thursday, thousands of Bahraini people gathered outside the United Nations headquarters in the capital, Manama, calling on the world body to help release political prisoners.

Scores of people have been killed and thousands more arrested for participating in anti-regime protests which erupted in mid-February 2011.

Bahraini demonstrators hold King Hamad responsible for the death of protesters during the popular uprising in the country that began last year.
