Bahraini journalists and intelligentsia protested outside Parliament on the World Press Freedom Day, reports [1]blogger Mahmood Al Yousif. “The number of people present were a cross section of society but all of whom share a basic understanding that they support the basic human right of the freedom to express oneself without fear of persecution,” he notes.
