A group of Iranian students have gathered outside the United Nations (UN) building in Tehran in protest at the violent suppression of Bahraini students.

Some 300 Iranian students protested on Tuesday against the silence of international circles on the ongoing crimes in Middle Eastern countries, particularly in Bahrain, Fars news agency reported.

Protesters were carrying placards reading Allah-o-Akbar (God is Great), “Saudis commit crimes, the UN supports” and “Down with the US.”

They expressed their outrage and hatred towards the massacre of defenseless Bahrainis and demonstrated their solidarity with all children and youth in regional countries.

The Iranian students condemned Saudi Arabia's invasion of Bahrain and the West's support for brutal measures against the masses.

At the end of the demonstration, the students submitted to the UN mission in Tehran a letter to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, calling on him to take a firm decision about the case.

Since the beginning of Bahrain's revolution, thousands of anti-government protesters have poured into the streets across the country, calling for an end to the rule of the Al-Khalifa dynasty.

According to local sources, dozens of people have been killed and hundreds arrested so far during the government clampdown on the peaceful demonstrations.

Rights groups say government forces have even raided hospitals and tortured doctors and patients as part of their efforts to suppress protest rallies and punish those that provide medical treatment to those injured in the brutal crackdown. Over 30 medical workers have so far gone missing since the uprising began.

Amnesty International says it is concerned about the fate of missing activists in Bahrain and the fact that detained protesters are being tortured there with impunity.
