Anti-regime protesters have held new demonstrations across Bahrain to express their solidarity with political prisoners and demand the downfall of the Al Khalifa regime, Press TV reports. Chanting anti-regime slogans, demonstrators took to the streets in several villages and cities, including Sitra near the capital, Manama, on Sunday. The protesters expressed solidarity with political prisoners in Bahrain, female political detainees in particular, and demanded that they be freed immediately. Scores of people have been killed and many others arrested by regime forces since the revolution started in Bahrain last year. The protests have been continuing since then despite the heavy-handed crackdown by the regime. Saudi Arabia has also been helping the Manama regime crush the popular uprising. The protesters hold King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa responsible for the death of demonstrators during the uprising. DB/MA/HJL
