Bahraini soldiers roamed the streets in the village of Nuwaidrat, situated about 10 kilometers (six miles) south of the capital, Manama, in armored vehicles on Tuesday, as people marched through the streets to observe the rituals of Ashura, the 10th day of the lunar month of Muharram.

Bahraini regime forces in riot gear then engaged in scuffles with the mourners, and fired tear gas canisters to disperse them.

On Saturday, Bahraini troops attacked Shia mourners commemorating the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (PBUH) in several villages across the country.

They destroyed and removed all banners, flags and black cloths hoisted to mark Ashura.

Bahrain’s Shia community has long complained of discrimination in the Persian Gulf island state.
