ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Qatif, Saudi Arabia's Eastern province and the focal point of unrest by minority Shi'ite Muslims, to protest the death of 15 people killed since November 2011 in clashes and protests, according to new footage posted on a social media website. Reuters cannot independently verify the content of the videos. The footage, which is said to have been filmed on Thursday shows people marching along the streets of Qatif and chanting ''Down with Mohammed bin Fahd," in reference to Eastern Province Governor Prince Mohammed bin Fahd, and "You have no legitimacy," in an apparent reference to Saudi govt. Two men were shot dead on September when Saudi security forces stormed a house to arrest a wanted man in Qatif, bringing the total deaths to 15 since November last year. Saudi authorities were trying to arrest one of 23 men who the government said were wanted for stirring unrest in Qatif.
