Saudi Shias protest against mosque bombing

By: Baqer Ali

AL-QATIF, Saudi Arabia: Hundreds of Saudi Arabia’s Shias held a huge protest on Sunday May 24 against the killings of innocent people in a suicide bombing on a mosque last Friday that authorities described as an attempt by extremists to sow sectarian strife.

Mass funeral was expected on Monday. The organizers expected huge crowds to turn out in the mainly Shia Qatif district of Eastern Province to show their respects for the 21 dead, who included two children.

The protestors were holding placards inscribed with anti-terrorism slogans. Some said: No to terrorism, others ‘we demand from the government to stop discrimination against Shias’.
