Al Khalifa forces detain 5 Bahraini minors in Diraz

Another five Bahraini minors were arrested at dawn on Monday in the kingdom’s northwestern village of Diraz.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Another five Bahraini minors were arrested at dawn on Monday in the kingdom’s northwestern village of Diraz.

Among those taken into custody by Manama’s security forces was 14-year-old Ali Al-Sayed Mahdi.

Mahdi’s grandfather headed a delegation last month that visited the Bahraini monarch Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and demanded he release all detainees under the age of 18.

The number of Bahraini minors taken into police custody without cause or an arrest warrant has risen substantially since last October.

Countless rights groups, including Human Rights Watch (HRW), blasted Manama in the past for “routinely” detaining children and subjecting them to “ill-treatment that may rise to the level of torture.”
