Thousands of Bahraini people have taken to the streets of the capital city of Manama despite the brutal crackdown on anti-government protesters by the regime.

Protesters chanted anti-regime slogans on Tuesday during the funeral ceremony of a woman who died of gunshot injuries to her head. She had disappeared in Manama during violence last week.

Bahrain's main opposition party, al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, has said more than 100 people are still missing.

The UN Human Rights office says dozens of people have been detained or threatened for talking to media, revealing facts about brutal suppression of protesters.

Meanwhile, 70 percent of the country's workers have reportedly launched a wave of strikes to join the protesters on the streets.

However, the regime forces, backed by troops from some Persian Gulf countries, have intensified their attacks on opposition figures and human rights activists. Reports say they attacked the office of the Islamic Action Association in the village of Bani Jamra.

Security forces have also attacked ambulances and hospitals trying to help the wounded demonstrators. Several doctors at Salmaniya hospital have reportedly been arrested.

Bahraini demonstrators maintain that they will hold their ground until their demands for freedom as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.

At least 16 people have so far been killed and about 1,000 others have been injured since anti-government protests in Bahrain.
