Bahrain police attack Shiite opposition offices
Manama: Security forces in Bahrain have
attacked the headquarters of the main Shiite opposition party
in the capital with tear gas.
Police forcibly broke up the Al Wefaq party`s weekly
meeting today and also used tear gas to disperse hundreds of
opposition supporters attempting to protest in the island
The clampdown today was the latest episode in 10 months
of unrest between Bahrain`s Sunni monarchy and an opposition
movement led by the country`s majority Shiites.
The attack comes a day after the Interior Ministry banned
Al Wefaq leaders from holding the weekly meeting.
Defying government orders, Shiite clerics today also held
prayer services on the rubble of mosques that had been
bulldozed by authorities earlier this year.
