Bahraini police break up antigovernment protest in Manama
The protesters took to the streets at the request of the February 14 Youth Coalition opposition group that is against the siege that’s been laid to the Shiite-populated Mahazza district, near the capital city.
Bahrain has been shaken by mass-scale protests since March last year, when police put down with a heavy hand Shiites’ revolt against the ruling Sunni regime.
Shiites make up 75% of Bahrain’s population.
