Protests continue against US-backed Bahraini dictatorship

Human rights advocate Abdulhadi al-Khawaja and Abduljalil al-Singace, a member of the opposition Haq party, were sentenced to life in prison in June. They are among dozens of opposition figures imprisoned by the Bahraini regime since the outbreak of anti-monarchy protests in February.
Zainab al-Khawaja, the daughter of a hunger striker, claimed that her father was beaten while in custody. “His jaw was broken,” she told the AFP news agency on Saturday. “They also beat him repeatedly on his jaw in court. The doctor had told him to eat well for his health to improve but he has already lost too much weight in prison and yesterday he called me to say his blood sugar level has dropped.”
Meanwhile, there are signs of renewed opposition to Bahrain’s al-Khalifa monarchy.
An anti-regime protest of over 10,000 people broke out in the working class village of Sitra on the night on August 31. The demonstration, the largest in Bahrain since June, was in response to the killing of a 14-year-old boy by police during an earlier protest against the regime.
Ali Jawad Ahmed was apparently struck in the face by a teargas canister fired at close range by police into the crowd in Sitra. He died shortly afterward in nearby health center.
“They are supposed to lob the canisters of gas, not shoot them at people,” said Isa Hassan, the dead boy’s uncle. “Police use it as a weapon.”
