At least six Bahrainis have been killed and more than 1,000 others injured by government security forces and Saudi troops, and thousands of Bahrainis have marched to the Saudi Embassy.

At least five villages came under attack by soldiers and helicopters using live ammunition against the protesters.

A medical source told AFP on Tuesday that the victims were shot with buckshot.

On the streets of the capital Manama, people have put up makeshift barricades to block the path of foreign forces. The Bahraini people say they do not want any foreign intervention in their country's affairs.

Also on Tuesday, thousands of anti-government demonstrators marched to the Saudi Embassy to protest against the military intervention, a day after military convoys crossed the border from Saudi Arabia into Bahrain to help the government suppress the protesters.

“Down, down with Hamad!” the crowds chanted at the Saudi Embassy, expressing their view that Bahrain's ruler, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, had gone too far in the crackdown on the opposition.
