Bahraini detainee admitted to hospital after launching hunger strike

Human rights activist, Ibtisam Al-Saegh, also tweeted the news of Mansoor's hospitalization.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Bahraini detainee Hajer Mansoor, 49, was admitted to hospital Thursday, her family said, three days after launching her second hunger strike behind bars to protest the treatment of prisoners.

Human rights activist, Ibtisam Al-Saegh, also tweeted the news of Mansoor's hospitalization.

Hajer Mansoor Hassan and her 18-year-old son were sentenced to three years in jail in October, in a trial decried by rights groups as an act of political reprisal against Bahraini activists.

She was hospitalized with hypoglycemia, three days after starting a hunger strike to protest the treatment of inmates at the notorious Isa Town Prison, her son-in-law Sayed Alwadaei said.

Bahrain's justice ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
