Saudi protesters have taken to the streets in the Qatif region of Eastern Province to demand the release of prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nemr al-Nemr.



The demonstrators on Sunday chanted slogans against the repressive regime of Al Saud.

Sheikh Nemr was attacked, injured and arrested by Saudi security forces while driving from a farm to his house in Qatif on July 8. He is currently in a military hospital in the city of Dhahran.

According to Human Rights Watch, the Saudi regime “routinely represses expression critical of the government.”
