Bahrainis protest outside embassy in Cairo

Scores of Bahraini activists on Thursday staged protests before their embassy in Cairo, demanding freedom and democracy for their country.

They hung pictures on the embassy gate of those killed during demonstrations, and condemned the Bahraini government for the way it has dealt with the opposition. They also criticized the Arab League for its passive stance regarding the brutality of the Bahraini government.

Protesters in Bahrain have been demanding a new constitution, the immediate release of all political prisoners and the withdrawal of the Peninsula Shield Forces.

In related news, dozens of Syrian nationals also protested before their embassy in Cairo, demanding that President Bashar al-Assad step down.
