Bahraini security forces have destroyed Sheikh Fadhel al-Asfari Mosque in Bilad al-Qadeem suburb of the capital Manama, al-Alam reports

Saudi-backed security forces in Bahrain demolished the mosque in a wave of attacks on mosques and holy places in and around Manama.

They also targeted Imam Baqer Mosque in Barbura, Imam Sadeq Mosque in Salmabad, Sheikh Hamad Mosque in Maqsha and Imam Mojtaba Mosque in Sanabis and shot teargas towards worshippers.

Anti-regime Bahraini protestors staged over 190 protests across the country in past five days and some 25 civilians, including three kids, have been arrested.

The regime forces attacked 98 houses in the late hours of recent nights, al-Wefaq National Islamic Society said in a statement.

The Bahraini uprising began in mid-February 2011 as a domino effect of the Arab Spring which took place in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.

The Bahraini government promptly launched a brutal crackdown on the peaceful protests and called in Saudi-led Arab forces from neighboring states.

Dozens of people have been killed in the crackdown, and the security forces have arrested hundreds, including doctors and nurses.

Bahrainis say they will continue holding demonstrations until their demand for the establishment of a democratically elected government is met.

Some human rights groups have criticized the Bahraini regime for violating international human rights codes in order to silence the opponents.
