The story of Sitra’s martyrs – 2012

 

I visited a grave yard in Sitra where martyr Ali Alshaikh is buried next to other martyrs.

Zainab Alkhawaja told us their stories, what happened and how they died.

Ali Alshaikh’s house was filled with his pictures, his mother remembers how active he was and kind to others. It was the third day of Eid in 2011 and he was only 14 when he got shot during a protest close to his Sitra home. He told his family he can’t celebrate Eid while there are political prisoners in Bahrain.
