Bahrain: Attacks against health professionals must be investigated: Appeal for Action Update
Health professionals in Manama have reported that they were attacked by security forces on 17 February, hours after state security personnel entered the area to evict protesters. The assaults by security forces constituted criminal acts and were carried out in breach of international law enforcement standards. Although the government has since tempered its use of force against protesters, Amnesty International remains concerned that the attacks on health professionals were unprovoked and unjustifiable, and is urging that they be immediately investigated and for those responsible to be brought to justice.
