Saudi protesters hold rally to support senior Shia cleric


Saudi protesters have once again taken to the streets, calling on authorities to overturn the death sentence handed to prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.


 
 
According to Press TV, the Saudis staged a rally in the Qatif region of Eastern Province for the third night in a row to show solidarity with Nimr, on death row in the kingdom.
 
The demonstrators carried placards and shouted slogans, urging the ruling Al Saud regime to release the respected cleric, who was sentenced to death last year.
 
The protest was held as calls were growing worldwide for the release of Nimr, who has been in jail for more than three years.
 
Also on Saturday, a similar rally was held outside the Saudi Embassy in London, where protesters voiced anger at the death penalty handed down to Nimr and other human rights activists in the Arab kingdom.
 
Nimr was attacked and arrested in Qatif in July 2012 on charges of disturbing the country’s security, delivering anti-government speeches, and defending political prisoners.
