Saudi Shia’s hold protest over regime killing

Saudi Shias hold protest over regime killingAnti-government Shia  demonstrators in Saudi Arabia were taken to the streets in the country’s oil-rich Eastern Province to protest the killing of a Shia young activist by Wahabi-Salfi security forces during a demonstration one day earlier.

Protesters came out in several towns and villages in the east, including the towns of Qatif and Awamiyahm, on Friday, demanding for liberty and equality. 

On Thursday, Saudi forces shot and martyred a 22-year-old anti regime protester, Esam Mohammed during a demonstration in the town of Awamiyah. 

There have been demonstrations in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province on an almost daily basis over the past few months, with protesters calling for political reform. 

Anti-government protests have intensified since November, when security forces opened fire on protesters in Qatif, killing five people and leaving many more injured. 

Activists say there are over 30,000 political prisoners in Saudi Arabia.
