Bahraini opposition activist shot, injured during protest in Sitra

Saudi-backed Bahraini regime forces have shot and injured an opposition activist in the village of Sitra, south of the capital Manama, Press TV reports.

The attack took place during a peaceful protest late on Sunday when Bahraini soldiers targeted the activist, Sadiq Rabiee, with birdshots.

Reports say he is now in a stable condition.

The protest comes only a few days after the Bahraini regime announced it would seek legal action against the main opposition party, Al-Wefaq. Manama says the party is behind the protests in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom.

Al-Wefaq, in a statement issued on Saturday, described the Bahraini Interior Ministry’s latest communiqué against the party as misleading and full of blatant lies.

Bahrain’s revolution began in mid-February 2011, when the people, inspired by the popular revolutions that toppled the dictators of Tunisia and Egypt, started holding massive demonstrations.

The Bahraini government promptly launched a brutal crackdown on the peaceful protests aided by Saudi-led Arab forces.

Dozens of people have been killed and hundreds more arrested and tortured in the crackdown.
