Bahrain: A decade of death

Throughout 2011, in response to peaceful pro-democracy protests, the Bahraini government carried out “a punitive and vindictive campaign of violent repression against its own citizens.” Following international criticism of Manama’'s abuses, including the use of arbitrary arrest, detention, torture, ill-treatment and unfair trials, King Hamad promised to improve things. However, a decade since the royal promise, things have worsened, with torture and the death penalty dramatically increased in this tiny island in the Persian Gulf.
