MANAMA, Bahrain, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A Bahrain protester jailed for reading a poem seen as critical of the ruling Khalifa family accused a Bahraini princess of torturing her while in custody.
Ayat al-Qurmazi was arrested in 2011 and said she was held in custody for nine days. She says she was abused by Noura Bint Ebrahim al-Khalifa, an officer in the country's drugs control unit.
Qurmazi's lawyer, Reem Khalaf, told the BBC her client saw the Bahraini princess present when she was abused while in detention.
"Noura was very angry that Ayat had seen her," the lawyer was quoted as saying. ....
