Authorities in Bahrain said Friday that they've arrested the daughter of a human rights activist who has drawn international attention and widespread protests with a hunger strike that he's sustained for nearly two months.
A Bahraini hunger striker protesting the assault and detention of her father and husband was taken to hospital Sunday but was released after refusing an intravenous tube, a human rights activist told CNN.
The daughter of a prominent human rights activist says she has started a hunger strike in an effort to win the release of her father and other family members she believes are being detained by authorities in Bahrain.
We were standing outside a home in the village of Bani Jamrah when 20 heavily-armed men jumped from military vehicles and surrounded us. Their faces covered with black ski masks, they pointed machine guns at us and demanded we get on the ground.
