Bahrain Mirror (Exclusive): Security authorities in Bahrain prevented the country's Shiite majority from holding their largest Friday prayers for a 60th consecutive week, by continuing to impose a siege on the town of Diraz.

Witnesses said that the authorities intensified their security presence on Friday (September 8, 2017) at the perimeter of Imam Sadiq Mosque in Diraz, where the largest Friday prayers for Shiites was usually held.

Since June 2016, security authorities have deprived Shiites of performing their largest Friday prayers, also stripping the Shiite majority's spiritual leader, Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, of his nationality and prosecuting him for exercising the Shia's obligatory Khoms (alms) ritual.
