Bahrain: Bloodied but unbowed: Unwarranted state violence against Bahraini protesters
Mass peaceful protests demanding political reform have shaken the Gulf state of Bahrain since mid-February. In response, the security forces initially sought to suppress the protests with brutality, killing seven protesters, injuring hundreds of others and assaulting paramedics. Proper, transparent investigations that ensure accountability and justice for the victims, and a strong government commitment to respect human rights are needed now.
