Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have reportedly razed another mosque in Hamad town after they destroyed five more mosques in the protest-hit country.
Tuesday’s destruction comes after five mosques in Hamad Town and Mahooz village in the east and northeast of Bahrain were ruined on Sunday.
Destruction of the religious sites has become a new scare tactic by Manama in its attempts to suppress the popular protests.
Earlier on Tuesday, reports said that arrested Bahraini opposition leaders have been tortured in prison.
Riot police in the Persian Gulf country also besieged the town of Karzakkan on Tuesday. Al-Malikiyah village is under the siege of Bahraini pro-regime thugs.
People in Bahrain have been protesting since February 14, demanding an end to the two-century-long rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.
Demonstrators maintain that they will hold their ground until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.
Bahraini forces have cracked down on the anti-regime protests with the help of Saudi, the UAE and Kuwaiti troops. Scores of people have been killed and many others gone missing since the beginning of the revolution. Agencies
