Iranian Schoolgirls Condemn Saudi Regime's Brutal Crimes in Bahrain

TEHRAN, May 3 (FNA)- Large numbers of Iranian schoolgirls staged a rally in front of the Saudi embassy in Tehran on Tuesday to protest at the massacre of peaceful protestors, specially girls, in Bahrain by the Saudi and al-Khalifa forces.
In the Tuesday gathering, the students who had come from different schools in Tehran condemned the crackdown, torture and massacre of the Bahraini girls and women by the Manama government and Saudi forces.

Participants in the rally chanted slogans in condemnation of the Saudi and Bahraini regimes' crimes against the Bahraini people.

"Death to the Infidel Saudi Regime", "Shame on the Wahhabi Caliph" and "The Bahraini Muslim! Congratulations on Your Martyrdom" were among the slogans chanted by the ralliers.

At the end of the rally, the schoolgirls issued a statement to condemn the inhumane and violent acts of the Saudi and al-Khalifa regimes in Bahrain and the support shown for these crimes by certain Muslim rulers.

Demonstrators in Bahrain have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old monarchy, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, at least 40 people have been killed, almost 100 have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.

The violence against protesters escalated when Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar dispatched their armed forces to the country to help Manama crack down on peaceful protesters.

Earlier, the Muslim Women Movement in a recent statement had protested at the brutal and cruel behavior of the Bahraini regime towards women in the country, and revealed that the Al-Khalifa regime has imprisoned innocent pregnant women in horrible dungeons.

"They keep pregnant women in terrifying prisons, martyr their husbands under torture and attack people's homes at night and create panic and horror," the statement said, addressing UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.
