Mob attacks three more schools in Bahrain
Manama, March 24, 2013
Saboteurs yesterday attacked three schools simultaneously as part of a mindless campaign to target Bahrain's education system, a report said.
Thugs set fire to the gate and external fence of Al Dair Primary School for Boys, according to the report in our sister publication, the Gulf Daily News (GDN).
They then broke the pipelines supplying Nasiba bint Kaab Primary School for Girls for the second time.
They also broke into Sehla Primary Intermediate School for Boys and smashed its laboratory window panes using an axe.
The gang escaped when the school guard intervened to prevent them from stealing fire extinguishers.
A total of 153 schools have been attacked since January 2012.
In another development, protesters clashed with police after around 100 people took to the streets near the Saar roundabout to take part in an illegal rally called by the Al Wefaq National Islamic Society. Police used tear gas to disperse the crowd and the GDN later witnessed clashes in Bani Jamra.
Officers also rescued a rioter who threw firebombs at them after he ran into a garden and was attacked by a guard dog. – TradeArabia News Service
