Mourning, protests and clashes in Bahrain as the country reacts to the execution of 3 men

Bahrainis in Mourning after Three Dissents Executed

Bahrainis held mourning ceremonies on Monday a day after the execution of three pro-democracy activists, media reports said. A mourning ceremony was held in al-Sanabis, where scholars, political and popular figures attended to offer condolences over the martyrdom of Ali Al-Singace, Abbas Al-Samee and Sami Mushaima, Al Manar reported. The three were convicted last week of killing a member of Emirati forces assisting Manama in its clampdown on Bahraini demonstrators in the northern village of al-Daih back in March 2014.

Shortly after the Bahraini regime announced the executions on Sunday, angered protesters took to streets voicing rejection to crackdown against dissents and stressing that the execution ruling was fabricated and based on confessions that followed torture of the three martyrs. Regime forces responded to protests by firing pellets and teargas canisters and injuring a number of the demonstrators. Manama’s troops also prevented people from holding a funeral procession for those executed.Bahraini forces fire tear gas at protesters

City Hall Torched as Execution Protests Rage in Bahrain

Protesters set ablaze a city hall in Bahrain, the government said on Monday, as fresh violence erupted over the executions of three men convicted of a deadly bomb attack on police. The fire in the building at Shamalia, South of the capital Manama, was eventually brought under control, said the interior ministry, without explicitly linking it to the executions, Middle East Eye reported. "According to initial reports, the fire was intentional and the specialised services are taking the necessary measures," the ministry wrote on Twitter. The blaze came after three men were put to death by firing squad on Sunday over the bomb attack on police in 2014, sparking clashes between angry protesters and security forces.Protesters slam execution of three activists in Bahrain
