Bahrain Mirror: Social media activists circulated photos showing hundreds of people protesting outside the house of the spiritual leader of the Shia majority Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim.

Bahrainis have completed their 170 days of continuous strike outside Sheikh Qassim's house despite the tightened security siege and arrest of dozens of citizens over the protest.

Thousands of citizens have been gathering since June 20 outside Sheikh Qassim's house protesting against the decision that revoked his citizenship and his referral to trial over Khums (Alms); a Shiite religious obligation.
