Bahrain Mirror: Bahraini Interior Ministry forces attacked late Monday (November 6, 2017) a number of citizens, who were participating in a Shiite religious event held in the town of Diraz.

Pictures and videos posted by activists showed security forces firing tear gas canisters at mourners participating a funeral procession commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Ali bin Mousa Al-Rida, the eighth imam of the Twelver Shia.

The authorities crack down on the opposition and the Shiite majority in the country, who demand putting an end to the ruling Al Khalifa family's monopoly over power and stop discrimination against the Shia community.
