Bahrain Mirror (Exclusive): Shiite clerics in Bahrain said that the security risks and violations committed by the authorities against the Shia are still ongoing, stressing that Friday and congregational prayers have been on a halt for a third consecutive week.

"In light of the authorities' crackdown on the Shia sect and prevention of Friday prayers, Imams of Friday and congregational prayers announce that they will continue to stop holding  Friday and congregational prayers (Thursday night and Friday morning and noon prayers)," said the clerics in a statement.

They further called for holding vigils outside mosques before or after prayers on Friday and Thursday nights to express their refusal of the clampdown on the Shia sect in the country.
