As Comment marks its 400th episode, we also commemorate the anniversary of Bahrain’s 2011 uprising against Al Khalifah rule, together with our viewers in solidarity with independent nations.

Bahraini regime forces have arrested dozens of anti-regime protesters who participated in demonstrations across the Persian Gulf kingdom to mark the fifth anniversary of their popular uprising.

The Bahrain Center for Human Rights announced on Sunday that a total of 59 protesters, were detained between February 12 and 14, and that 26 minors were among those arrested, Arabic-language Laulau satellite television network reported.

The rights organization added that 46 anti-regime demonstrations were staged in 26 areas across Bahrain, and that a large number of others had to be called off due to the heavy-handed crackdown in place.

Since February 14, 2011, thousands of anti-regime protesters have held numerous demonstrations on an almost daily basis in the kingdom, calling for the Al Khalifah family to relinquish power.
