Police say they are dealing with an 'incident' in Belgrave Square today, with several road closures in place in the area.
Some protesters have gone to the top of the Bahraini Embassy and have displayed banners of a Bahraini activist called Al-Khawaja who is on a hunger strike for 67 days. They are demanding the release of the prisoner. The two protesters were also seen waving the Bahraini flag.
According to the first information from Bahraini activits, the two protesters are Moosa Abd Ali and Ali Mushaima, son of detained leader Hassan Mushaima.
The two protesters are reportedly refusing to come down.
Seven police vehicles and 2 ambulances are reportedly positioned outside the Bahraini embassy in London. The area has been cordoned off and the staff embassy has been evacuated.
The two activists have started chanting in English and in Arabic anti-government slogans such as "People yes, Hamad no, He's a killer, he must GO!", ''Down Down Hamad". They were joined by protesters who arrived at the scene. According to protesters on the ground posters of Hassan Mushaima and rights activist Al-Khawaja are being distributed amongst demonstrators.
Violence has escalated in Bahrain over the past few weeks. On Friday, police fired tear gas at thousands of mourners who gathered for the funeral of citizen journalist Ahmed Ismael who died last month after receiving a bullet in the upper right thigh whilst filming the crackdown of security forces on a demonstration. According to the opposition a 15-year-old mourner was shot while attending the funeral.
Al-Wefaq society, the main opposition group in Bahrain, has planned a whole week of demonstrations starting today to protest against Eclesstone's decision to go ahead with the Bahrain Grand Prix scheduled for April 22.
Majority Shi'ites, who complain about political and economic marginalisation, led a protest movement that erupted in February last year after revolts in Egypt and Tunisia, only to be crushed in mid-March when the government imposed martial law and brought in Saudi and United Arab Emirates troops. More than a year after the beginning of the uprising, the opposition continue their struggle against the Sunni Muslim Al Khalifa family, which has ruled the Shi'ite-majority country for more than two centuries.
