Bahrain expels protest-backing pupils

At least 33 students were expelled from Shahrakan primary school for voicing support for anti-regime protests across the country on a school bus.

The move came shortly after a fourth Bahraini anti-government protester died under severe torture while in police custody.

Witnesses say Bahraini authorities did not allow Abdul Kareem al-Fakhrawi's family to see his body and only his face was shown.

Bahraini authorities had earlier suspended over 200 athletes for joining the popular revolution in the country.

Several leading basketball, volleyball and handball players are among those suspended.

Four national team players, who are also among those suspended, will be automatically disqualified from playing in tournaments.

Since the beginning of anti-government protests in Bahrain in mid-February, scores of protesters have been killed and many others gone missing. Victims' bodies are usually discovered days later.

The Bahraini Center for Human Rights (BCHR) has announced that the number of detained opposition activists in the Persian Gulf state has exceeded 800, including 17 women.

The protesters are demanding an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

Bahraini security forces are brutally cracking down on civilian demonstrators with assistance from troops deployed to the country from Saudi and UAE.

Protesters, however, say that they will continue their street protests until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.
