On 26 July 2012, hundreds of peaceful Saudi Shiite protesters marched in Qatif to demand the release of prominent cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr who was arrested earlier this month, and other detainees.
The demonstrators carried posters of Shiite detainees, including Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.
The security forces and anti-riot police tried to disperse the protestors. They attacked the demonstrators and opened fire on them using live rounds wounded at least 20 protesters.

Opposition activist Dr. Hamza al-Hassan said that the “health situation of Sheikh Nimr is not good,” adding that the Sheikh had facial bruise and his teeth were broken.
On his account on Twitter, Dr. al-Hassan said that some members of Sheikh Nimr’s family had visited him in his detention.
He added that the visit was after a call by the Saudi authorities. However it was brief in which the visitors could talk to him nothing but some general statements, al-Hassan said.
He noted that the authorities demanded that family of the Sheikh calm the angry protesters, adding: “this is the aim of the visit.”
Meanwhile, the Saudi Rasid news network reported that Sheikh Nimr’s family had visited him in the military hospital of Zahran, where he is being treated after being injured by gunshots during detention last week.
The network quoted some visitors as saying that the Sheikh went under surgery in order to take out the bullet which was in his thigh, and adding that he was getting well.
According to Rasid, some observers said the Saudi authorities had permitted the visit, which they described as exceptional, in order to put an end to the rumors over the fate of Sheikh Nimr, especially after some photos were leaked, showing the Sheikh unconscious bloodstained.
