Navideshahed: Bahrainis have held protests in several villages across the country to demand the release of jailed political activists.

The protestors burned tires and blocked roads in several villages on Monday.

They also gathered in front of a court in the capital, Manama, on Monday to protest the trial of political prisoners.

Top Bahraini opposition figures including leader of the al-Wefaq group Ali Salman also attended the demonstration in Manama.

Bahrainis also expressed solidarity with prominent jailed human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, who has been on hunger strike for more than two months.

His wife said on Sunday that Khawaja “was drugged and force-fed against his will”? on April 23, but a spokesperson for the Bahrain Defense Forces Hospital rejected the issue.

Khawaja, who holds dual Danish and Bahraini nationality, was given a life sentence in June 2011 over accusations of inciting protests against the Manama regime.
