Kuwait MPs Rap Bahrain Crackdown

A number of Kuwaiti clerics and members of parliament have condemned the use of violence by the Bahraini security forces against pro-democracy protesters. Yusuf al-Zalzalah, an MP at the National Assembly of Kuwait, voiced concern over the recent uprising in Bahrain which killed and injured several protesters, IRNA reported Friday. He said that the Bahraini army's measures to break up and open fire on peaceful protests of people, who demand more political reforms, had not already been common in other countries of the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council. He called on the Bahraini government to treat protesters in a humane way rather than resorting to violent crackdown. MP Adnan Abdulsamad said that the Bahraini government needed to deal with protesters tactfully and rationally. Senior Kuwaiti cleric Mohammed Baqer Musawi al-Muhri also called on Bahrain to respond to the legitimate demands of protesters. Friday prayers leader of the Imam Hussein mosque in Kuwaiti City Saleh Johar Hayat also condemned the violent crackdown and said the regimes in Tunisia and Egypt fell for trampling the rights of their people. On Friday, the Bahraini military opened machinegun fire on protesters trying to reach hospitals in what appeared to be an attempted massacre. Army forces also prevented ambulances and medics from reaching those wounded amid massive pro-democracy protests in Bahrain. The Friday shooting came after a funeral procession, held for those killed on Thursday, turned into pro-democracy protests with a turnout of tens of thousands. Four pro-democracy protesters were killed and 231 others wounded after riot police raided the protest camp in the early hours of Thursday, when most of the demonstrators were sleeping, in an attempt to clear capital's main square from demonstrators. The Bahraini crown prince expressed condolences to citizens over the killing of demonstrators in Manama and called for dialogue. The opposition has rejected holding talks with the government until it resigns.
