[06 Aug 2012] Saudi Sunnis Shias seek democracy Hisham Jaber - English Protesters have held a demonstration against the repressive regime of Al Saud in Tarout Island of Saudi Arabia. The demonstrators on Sunday condemned the recent killing of a teenager by the Saudi police. The protesters in Tarout also expressed solidarity with prominent detained Shia cleric Sheikh Nemr al-Nemr, who was attacked, injured and arrested by the security forces of the Al Saud regime while driving from a farm to his house in Qatif on July 8. However, the demonstrations have turned into protests against the Al Saud regime, especially since November 2011, when Saudi security forces killed five protesters and injured many others in the Eastern Province. According to Human Rights Watch, the Saudi regime "routinely represses expression critical of the government." Press TV has conducted an interview with Hisham Jaber, director of the Middle East Studies Center, from Beirut, to further discuss the issue.
