Bahraini doctors remain in king's detention

HRW posted this March 20: "Bahrain should end its campaign of arrests of doctors and human rights activists, Human Rights Watch said today.

On March 19-20, 2011, state security forces, often masked and in civilian dress, arrested four medical doctors, and two human rights activists, and sought the arrest of a third. Human Rights Watch also remains concerned about the whereabouts of those doctors and rights advocates still in detention. The arrests, some of which occurred during pre-dawn hours, appear part of a broader government crackdown involving nighttime raids on the homes of those viewed as supporting pro-democracy protesters, Human Rights Watch said."

Today a facebook friend posted a link to Free Dr. Ghassan Dhaif and Bassem Dhaif. Thanks Arwa for posting!

Dear Sir,

I am from Bahrain and would like to thank you for your articles about Bahrain. It truly reflects that you are person of dignity. I write this with tears in my eye, that my own countrymen have no mercy on us, while our Iraqi brothers are with us. May Allah bless your life and protect you.

Thank you
