Bahraini attorney general charges 13 anti-regime activists with terrorism
Bahrain's attorney general says officials have charged 13 anti-regime protesters with terrorism offenses as the ruling Ale Khalifah regime does not shy away from its heavy clampdown on political dissidents and pro-democracy activists in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom.
According to Press TV, Attorney General Ahmad al-Hamadi said on Thursday “Charges of forming and funding a terrorist cell have been filed against six persons in custody and another seven charged in absentia.”
Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country in mid-February 2011.
Scores of people have lost their lives and hundreds of others sustained injuries or got arrested as a result of the Ale Khalifah regime’s crackdown.
