Bahrain Mirror: Bahraini protestors managed to break through the barriers deployed by the ministry of interior to direct the protests that the revolutionary opposition forces called for staging on a highway, east of the Bahraini capital, Manama, on Saturday (May 30, 2015). Dozens of Bahrainis marched through Al-Budai Street starting from Al-Daih and reaching AbdulKareem roundabout, where they clashed with security forces, which were heavily deployed there.

Fathers of the martyrs, who were killed in the uprising that erupted in 2011, lead the demonstration, holding banners that read slogans demanding democracy and calling for taking revenge on the martyrs' murderers. The ministry of interior took proactive steps and set dozens of checkpoints and barriers on the outskirts of Al-Sanabis, Jidhafs and Al-Daih, where the protest was staged in. Eyewitnesses reported unusual security measures and heavy deployment of security forces, while photos of protestors showed the moment they were present at Al-Budai Street and when they were pursued by security forces.
