1) Human Rights Activists under Attack – December 17th 2007

A peaceful demonstration, held by several human rights and political activists on 17 December 2007, to commemorate the 13th anniversary of the killing of two protestors, was violently dispersed by Bahraini security forces, resulting in the death of an activist. In the wake of this demonstration, several human rights activists were arrested and subsequently laid down with trumped up charges of rioting, possession and theft of weapons and setting fire to a police vehicle. The detained activists have reportedly been subjected to beatings and torture while in detention. Their case continues in court.
