Anti-regime protesters have demonstrated in Saudi Arabia to condemn the regime’s crackdown on peaceful protests and call for the release of political prisoners.
On Wednesday, demonstrators held rallies against the repressive regime of Al Saud in Eastern Province, demanding an end to human rights violation in the monarchy.

Saudi Arabia has arrested scores of anti-government protesters since the beginning of the uprising in the country. Prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nemr Baqir al-Nemr is among the detainees.

Sheikh Nemr was injured and arrested by Saudi security forces of the Al Saud regime while driving from a farm to his house in Qatif on July 8.

Similar protests were also held in Buraydah, about 380 kilometers (236 miles) northwest of the capital Riyadh, where demonstrators gathered in front of a mosque to express solidarity with political prisoners and called for their release.
