About 28 mosques and 50 mourning halls have been demolished in Bahrain since the beginning of anti-regime protests in February, a report says.

Activists told Press TV on Friday that the mosques were destroyed during the anti-government protests. Some of the mosques were located in Karzakan, Salmabad, Bu Quwah, and A'ali.

Bahraini people have poured to the streets since February 14 to protest against the Al Khalifa dynasty.

The 'Qur'an Friday' rallies have been planned in the Persian Gulf state on April 22 to condemn the deadly Saudi-backed crackdown on the opposition.

In March, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait deployed their troops in Bahrain to reinforce the brutal armed clampdown against the mass protests.

Scores of protesters have been killed and many others gone missing during the harsh Saudi-backed crackdown in Bahrain.

Head of Bahrain Center for Human Rights Nabeel Rajab said the Manama regime should be held accountable for the ongoing crimes against the protesters.

Despite the Saudi military presence in Bahrain, the government of Bahrain is ultimately responsible for suppressions and persecutions, Rajab said in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday.

The Saudis have committed a lot of crimes, including crimes against humanity, in Bahrain, but the Bahraini government that invited the Saudis to Bahrain is mainly responsible, he added.
