Northern Police Directorate / Statement



Manama-Nov4 (BNA)Public security forces today re-established order following an illegal demonstration staged after the funeral of Ali Hassan Al-Daihi. Around 600 rioters took to the streets, committing acts of sabotage and blocking roads with garbage bins and rocks.
Allegations made to a news agency by so-called Matar Matar, claiming that police cars had attempted to run over protesters were strongly denied.
"These allegations don't have an iota of truth, being baseless", Northern Police director-general said, stressing the duties of police forces to protect citizens and expatriates' security and safety as well as public and private properties.
