Hounding Bahrain activists


Bahrain abducts two senior clerics
Bahraini forces have abducted two senior clerics as the government is putting more pressure to suffocate anti-regime protests.The Saudi-backed Bahraini forces arrested clerics Sayyed Mohammad al-Alawi and Sheikh Abdul Adim al-Mohtadi in the capital Manama on Monday. It comes after the Bahraini government dismissed 30 doctors and 150 health ministry workers for supporting anti-government protests, a Press TV correspondent reported. Meanwhile, police stormed schools on Monday and arrested teachers ahead of a planned strike. Earlier, Bahraini authorities expelled 16 Lebanese nationals from the country. The move came after the leader of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, voiced support for the Bahraini protesters. Bahraini people have been demanding an end to the two-century-long rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty since February 14. Scores of protesters have been killed and many others gone missing since the beginning of the revolution. Bahraini forces have reinforced a massive armed crackdown
