Bahrainis hold mass anti-regime rally

Thousands of Bahraini anti-government protesters have poured into the streets near the capital, Manama, to demand the ouster of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

The mass rally is reported to be organized by Bahrain’s influential opposition bloc, al-Wefaq.
Recently released former opposition lawmakers also attended the rally.

Jawad Fairooz and Matar Matar, who were detained in May after resigning from parliament in protest at the brutal crackdown on protests, said they had been tortured in prison.
