Bahrain IM sacked over attack on protest against holy sites sacrilege

By: Ali Al-Qadumi/ Shila Abulhasan/ Ali Muradi

MANAMA, Bahrain: Bahrain's king Sheik Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa has fired interior minister after police attack Friday on demonstrators who staged protest against the sacrilege of Iraq holy cities expressing solidarity with Najaf Marjaiyah and Iraqi people.

A royal decree replaced Interior Minister Sheik Mohammed bin Khalifa Al-Khalifa with Gen. Rashed bin Abdallah bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa.

“What happened between the police and the protesters didn't please us,” the royal statement said adding that citizens had the right to protest against “the violation of the holy cities and what happened in Iraqi prisons.”

The king said: “We share the anger of our people over the oppression and aggression taking place in Palestine and in the holy shrines (in Iraq). People had a right to peaceful protests. We are investigating.”

Violence broke out Friday after police fired tear gas to disperse thousands of peaceful demonstrators in the capital Manama who were demanding the withdrawal of US forces from the southern Iraqi holy cities of Najaf and Karbala. More than 20 people were hurt. Many women and children fainted from inhaling gas.

Bahrain is a Shiite majority Arab state.

“Death to America ... death to Israel,” chanted the protesters holding banners inscribed with holy shrines and portraits of Ayatullah As-Sistani in the pro-Western Gulf Arab state, home to the US Navy's Fifth Fleet. Some demonstrators wore white shrouds to indicate their willingness to die to defend the holy sites.
