Bahraini authorities have razed to the ground a hospital west of the country for providing medical services to injured anti-government protesters.

The Shahrakan Maternity Hospital was bulldozed over by army forces on Friday and there are no reports about the condition or whereabouts of the injured.

Bahraini authorities earlier destroyed the Pearl Square in the capital Manama, which was the epicenter of anti-government protests.

Also on Friday, Bahraini security attacked anti-government protesters in the city of Sitra using teargas, buckshots and stun grenades. Many protesters have been reportedly injured.

Witnesses say authorities have closed all medical centers in the area and no ambulance is allowed to take wounded protesters.

Reports coming from Bahrain say at least 30,000 people attended the protest rally in Sitra.

Thousands of anti-government protesters have also poured into the streets in Bilad al Qadem, a village on the outskirt of Manama, to attend the funeral procession of Hani Abdulaziz, a protester who was killed earlier this week.

According to witnesses, mourners were surrounded by hundreds of security troops and an army helicopter was hovering over the funeral procession in Bilad Qadem. However, there were no reports of clashes between anti-government protesters and security forces in the village.

The recent brutal crackdowns in Bahrain come as the United Nations' human rights office has called on Manama not to use military force on protesters.

Thousands of anti-government protesters poured into the streets across Bahrain on Friday, dubbed the "Day of Rage."

Since the beginning of anti-government demonstrations in Bahrain at least 20 protesters have been killed and many others have gone missing.
