gency) - Bahraini people have held a massive funeral south of the capital Manama for a 59-year-old man, the latest victim of the regime’s brutal crackdown on peaceful protests.
The funeral for Haj Hassan Abdullah Ali was held in the town of Sitra on Wednesday, one day after he martyred of inhaling toxic gas during an attack by Saudi-backed regime forces on his home.
The mourners chanted slogans calling for the downfall of the ruling Al Khalifa family.
Bahraini protesters have been holding anti-regime demonstrations since February 2011 and they hold King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa responsible for the deaths of demonstrators during the uprising.
The protesters say they will continue holding street protests until their demand for the establishment of a democratically elected government is met.
Meanwhile, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) has stated that the Manama regime has failed to make good on a promise to implement political reforms in the country.
According to the report, some 90 people have been killed since the beginning of the popular uprising and at least 34 people have died since the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry released its findings last November.
