Bahrain: Politicians Attacked by Riot Police

“Riot police attacked a seminar this evening in support of Hassan Mushaima and Abdulhadi Alkhawaja. They used tear gas and rubber bullets. According to some online reports, Waad’s Ibrahim Sharif was injured, possibly by a rubber bullet, and had to be taken to hospital….This attack comes just a day after the King ordered the public prosecutor to drop the case against the activists,” writes Chanad Bahraini.
