Five killed during Bahrain police raid on protest

DUBAI: Five people were killed in Bahrain on Tuesday after police opened fire on a protest by supporters of a top cleric in a Shiite village, the interior ministry said, in the latest unrest to hit the Sunni-ruled Gulf state. …

Witnesses had earlier told AFP that several civilians were wounded when police officers fired at demonstrators …

“A total of 286 arrests were made, including fugitives that had escaped from Jau Prison,” the ministry said. …

The kingdom has been rocked by unrest since 2011, when local authorities backed by a Saudi military force crushed Shiite-led protests demanding a constitutional monarchy and an elected prime minister.

Earlier Tuesday, the Britain-based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD) had announced one death as the police moved to disperse the long-running protest.

Amnesty International identified that protester as Mohamed Zayn al-Deen, 39, and said he had died of birdshot wounds to the head.

The police operation came just days after President Donald Trump met with Bahrain´s King Hamad in Saudi Arabia at the weekend, where the US leader made a clear break from previous US policy.

Trump told the king on Sunday it was “a great honour to be with you” and said there “has been a little strain but there won´t be strain with this administration”. …

The [Bahraini] government´s clampdown on dissent has drawn harsh condemnation from international rights groups and governments.
