Baku-APA. Bahrain police have abducted six female teachers from school in Muharraq following the regime’s crackdown on anti-government protesters, APA reports quoting Press TV.

The teachers were kidnapped on Tuesday, witnesses said.

On Monday, Bahraini security forces arrested eight teachers and several pupils in the town of Hamad.

Meanwhile, the Bahraini education ministry formed a committee tasked with taking action against school officials taking part in anti-government protests and strikes.

Reports said some heads of schools, administration staff as well as teachers have already been summoned for questioning.

To express solidarity with the ongoing revolution, thousands of teachers, called by the Bahrain Teachers Society, went on a strike in February and again during in March.

People in Bahrain have been protesting since February 14, demanding an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

Demonstrators maintain that they will hold their ground until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.

Bahraini forces with the help of Saudi, the UAE and Kuwaiti troops have cracked down on the anti-regime protesters. Many people have gone missing since the beginning of the revolution.
