Nabeel Rajab, president of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, said the government had blocked roads to try to prevent people from attending the funeral ceremony.

Bahrain is hoping to conclude an arms deal with the United States but the purchase could hinge on the results of the commission investigating this year's unrest and claims by Shias of abuse they suffered during martial law.

Martyr Ali Hasan al-Dehi, 70, was attacked by riot police forces Wednesday evening........

 

 

SF's threatened by a 70 year old man?  Or, was it his son's connection to Al-Wefaq that motivated the attack?!  This is horrid!  The al-Khalifa regime must be brought to justice for their politically motivated murders!

It appears tonight that Bahrain has another high-profile dispute over the death of a civilian, allegedly at the hands of riot police.

According to the opposition party Al Wefaq, the father of its Deputy Secretary General, Sheikh Hussain Al Daihi, was beaten on Wednesday night as he returned home. Ali Hassan Al Daihi, found on the floor of the house by one of his sons, said he had been assaulted --- his son tried to leave to confront the police but his dad stopped him. There was a deep wound on the back of Ali Hassan Al Daihi's head and bruises on his forehead and around his eyes. Blood was flowing from his mouth.
