    Clashes have erupted in Bahrain as anti-government protesters mark the second anniversary of the intervention by a Saudi-led force in the Gulf island’s crisis. …

    The police have fired tear gas and sounds of stun grenades are reverberating across the city. Most roads leading into Manama are closed.

    The protesters are denouncing the intervention two years ago by Saudi and other Gulf troops who arrived in Bahrain to help the Western-backed Sunni monarchy quell a wave of anti-government protests demanding a greater role for the country’s Shiite majority.

      DUBAI: Bahraini police clashed with youths protesting Thursday against the deployment into a third year of a Gulf military force that backed Manama’s bid to crush a Shia-led uprising, witnesses said.

      Police fired tear gas and sound bombs to disperse hundreds who took to the streets across several Shia villages chanting: “No, no Saudi occupier” and “Down (King) Hamad,” the witnesses said.

      On March 14, 2011, a joint Peninsula Shield Force – led by Sunni Saudi Arabia – rolled into Bahrain to help restore order in the strategic Gulf kingdom where protesters had camped for a month in the capital’s financial centre.

      The Gulf troops continue to protect the kingdom’s vital installations but do not intervene to disperse protests.

      “Bahrain free, free, Peninsula Shield out, out,” chanted the demonstrators, who took to the streets in response to calls for rallies by the clandestine cyber radical group The February 14 Revolution Youth Coalition. …

      The International Federation for Human Rights says around 80 people have been killed in Bahrain since the violence first broke out on February 14, 2011.
