Bahrain Mirror: Thousands of Bahrainis took part in the procession (Wednesday February 15, 2017) marking the end of the mourning ceremonies in memory of martyr Rida Al Ghasra and his two companions. Meanwhile, vast protests continued for the second day in a row in commemoration of February 14 Revolution.

Thousands of protesters marched the streets of Bani Jamra (West of Manama), with photo for martyrs Al Ghasra, Mahmoud Yahya, and Mostafa Yousef, who were killed by special forces at sea last Thursday (February 9, 2017).

Demonstrators chanted slogans against Bahraini King, saying "Down with Hamad", and "The people want to topple the regime". They stressed their continuation in the path of struggle against the ruling family, which exercises monopoly over power.

Moreover, thousands also took to the streets in a night procession in commemoration of the February 14 Revolution's 6th anniversary. Regime forces attacked protesters with shotguns and teargas canisters, causing injuries in the lines of protesters.
