LAST UPDATE



Saudi regime forces have opened fire on anti-government demonstrators in the kingdom's Eastern Province, killing one person and wounding at least 14 others.


The incident occurred in the city of Qatif on Thursday, when Saudi forces used live rounds to disperse peaceful protesters.

Several of those injured in the deadly crackdown are in critical condition.

Activists said the situation is tense in the city of Qatif and the nearby villages, which have been surrounded by military vehicles.

Earlier, protesters took to the streets, saying they will not be humiliated by the government.

Saudi people have been taking to the streets since 2011, calling for more freedom and financial security.

Regime forces have killed at least six protesters since November.

Rights groups have slammed Riyadh for its persecution of protesters and called for an investigation into the killings.

Amnesty International and the Human Rights Watch have also accused the Al Saud regime of silencing dissent through intimidation and violation of the basic rights of citizens.

Saudi security forces have opened fire on anti-government protesters in the eastern part of the country, injuring at least two demonstrators and killing one in Awamiyah.


Witnesses say hundreds of Saudis took to the streets in the oil-rich east on Friday, one day after regime forces opened fire on protesters in Qatif, killing a demonstrator and injuring more than 14 others.

Some of the injured are reported to be in critical condition.

Protesters also chanted slogans against the ruling Al Saud family.

Protest rallies were reported in the cities of Qatif, Tarut, Rabi'iyah and Awamiyah.

At least one protester was killed amd two others were injured after Saudi security forces opened fire on demonstrators in Awamiyah, where the Friday Prayers leader demanded an end to Al Saud rule.

Saudis have held peaceful demonstrations since February last year on an almost regular basis in the eastern region, demanding reforms, freedom of expression and the release of political prisoners.

Protesters also want an end to economic and religious discrimination against the oil-rich region. Several demonstrators have been killed and dozens of activists have been arrested since the beginning of protests in the region.

Riyadh has intensified its crackdown on protesters since the beginning of 2012.
