Bahraini mourners smoked out of wake with teargas | The Observers

Bahraini mourners smoked out of wake with teargas | The Observers | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

More than the attack itself, residents of Aali were shocked by the fact it was carried out on the Islamic New Year, which also coincides with the first day of the commemoration of Ashura [in Islam, the day of Ashura falls on the tenth day of the Muslim calendar, however celebrations take place over a 13-day period, beginning with the New Year. Although Ashura is celebrated by all Muslims, it holds special significance among Shiites, as it marks the death of the revered religious figure Ali’s son, Hussein, who was also grandson to the prophet Mohamed].

The security forces even ripped down the black curtains that were hung in the house [Shiites traditionally dress in black during Ashura, to mourn Hussein’s death]. I’m afraid that the situation will worsen in the coming days”.

Al Jazeera speaks to President of Bahrain Centre for Human Rights about BICI report

Al Jazeera speaks to Nabeel Rajab, President of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights.

In comments to Al Jazeera, Rajab said violence is continuing in Bahrain and that the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) report is unlikely to cause a drastic shift in the Gulf kingdom's handling of on-going protests.

Rajab also went on to say that the abuse against protesters being investigated was likely dictated from top ministries and not just a few policemen.

Bahrain forces comb Shi'ite town before rights report : Martyr Jaafar Abdul Nabi

Hours earlier, a security forces vehicle in the town smashed into the car of Abdelnabi Kadhim Aaqil, which struck a parked vehicle and killed the driver, activists said. Security forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets after the crash, they said.

It was not clear whether the dead motorist had been involved in protests, which take place almost daily in Shi'ite regions of Bahrain and are often put down by security forces with tear gas.

The dead man's home, reeking of tear gas, was deserted and apparently abandoned by its occupants, after what neighbors said was a raid by security forces that is typical of their reaction to protest-related deaths in the area.

"They behave savagely," said a 32-year-old resident of the neighborhood who identified himself as Hussein. "They want no voice raised against them ... the idea is to frighten us."

“I saw the police attack. There were a few dozen protesters shouting and chanting. The police attacked them with tear gas, rubber bullets, and sound bombs,” said Mohammed Maskati, head of the Bahraini Youth Society for Human Rights.

Nabil Rajab, a Shiite rights and opposition activist said the victim, Abdelnabi Kadhim, was “apparently not protesting. He was in his car when then police chased after him.”
