Bahrain's main opposition party has accused the ruling Al Khalifa monarchy of covering up brutality against peaceful protesters.

Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society recently issued a statement describing the Bahraini Interior Ministry's latest communiqué as misleading and full of obviously blatant lies.

The statement said protesters behaved peacefully throughout a march on Friday, posing no threat of any kind to anyone.

This is while the Bahraini security forces -- backed by masked militiamen and plainclothes -- violently attacked the demonstrators and used foul language, tear gas, stun grenades and batons to break up their rally, al-Wefaq pointed out.

The Al Khalifa regime seeks to conceal committed "atrocities" against protestors in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom through a total ban on public protests. Such a move deprives the nation of the right to freedom of expression, al-Wefaq pointed out.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Sara Marusek, political analyst from Beirut, to further discuss the issue.
