(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The family of a Bahraini detainee Muhammad Ali is demanding that immediate medical treatment be provided to their loved one.

Muhammad Ali was arrested earlier this month after security forces attacked a peaceful anti-regime protest marking the seventh anniversary of Bahrain’s popular uprising. In the process, he was shot in the leg with shotgun pellets.

Following repeated attempts to gain access to him, Muhammad Ali’s family say they were left “horrified” after a brief visit to Bahrain’s Dry Dock Detention Center.

They explained that the young man was extremely frail and had not received the desperately needed medical attention.

Conditions in Bahrain’s detention facilities are often described as being intolerable with widespread allegations of systematic abuse and harassment.
