Shiite protests continue in Qatif; police arrest several

By: Abdulali

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia: Saudi security forces have detained a number of Shiite protesters in Qatif of the oil-rich mominin-dominated eastern province on Friday, according to the kingdom’s official news agency.

Witnesses said the forces first opened fire on the protesters, wounding several as hundreds marched to demand the release of detainees.

The demonstrators carried posters of Shiite detainees, including prominent cleric Nimr al-Nimr, who was arrested earlier this month, witnesses said.

The district witnessed a spate of protests after an outbreak of violence between Shiite pilgrims and religious police in the Muslim holy city of Medina in February last year.
