Navideshahed: A Bahraini man has been found dead near the northern village of Abu Saiba amid protests against a decision to hold the Formula One Grand Prix auto race in Manama on April 22, Press TV has learnt.

Bahraini activists said the body of Saleh Abbas Habib was found near Abu Saiba, about 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) west of the capital Manama, on Saturday.

Habib had gone missing since Friday, when clashes broke out between Bahraini police and anti-regime demonstrators in the area.

The man is the ninth victim of the ongoing regime crackdown since March 17, 2012.

Meanwhile, Bahraini regime forces attacked demonstrators in several villages near Manama on Saturday. Clashes broke out between security forces and protesters and police used tear gas and sound grenades to disperse the demonstrators.

Protesters were calling for the cancelation of the Formula One sporting event, which the Bahraini activists say is being used by the Manama regime to cover up human rights violations in the country.

Bahraini demonstrators say they are determined to continue protests against holding the controversial Formula One event despite brutality exercised by the regime forces.
