Saudi forces kill Shia activist in Qatif

 

Saudi forces have killed a Shia activist during a raid on his house in the Qatif region, Eastern Province.

The Taghrid Ahrar Twitter account reported that Salman al-Faraj was killed during the raid on Tuesday.

The Riyadh regime’s forces briefly arrested his wife, Sakina al-Faraj, who was injured in the attack.

The victim's brother Zaki al-Faraj and his nephew Salman were also arrested.

The Shia-populated Eastern Province has been the scene of peaceful demonstrations since February 2011. Protesters have been demanding reforms, freedom of expression, the release of political prisoners, and an end to economic and religious discrimination against the oil-rich region.
