‘Night raids, torture, sham trials a daily reality in Bahrain’ – human rights activist

RT on Oct 21, 2013

In an Arab world swept away by revolutions and wars, few states have remained intact. And at what cost? Bahrain has seen protests, arrests and crackdowns on the opposition. Does stability necessarily mean political oppression in the Middle East? Why is Bahrain’s trouble off international media’s radar? We talk to human rights activist Maryam Alkhawaja, daughter of Bahrain’s renowned dissident, Abdulhadi Alkhawaja, who is now in jail.

Fresh rally in Bahrain comes days after death of young demonstrator

PressTV on Oct 20, 2013

More anti-regime protests in Bahrain. This, as security forces step up their crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators. People clashed with regime forces on the northeastern island of Sitra. The protesters also chanted anti-regime slogans and called for the release of all political prisoners. The fresh rally comes after the burial of a young demonstrator thought to be killed by Manama forces a few days ago. The tiny kingdom in the Persian Gulf has been the scene of anti-monarchy protests since February 2011. Local sources say scores of people have been killed and hundreds more arrested. While the Western media keep ignoring the Bahraini regime’s human rights abuses, Manama has continued cracking down on dissent since the uprising began there over two and a half years ago.
