UN Condemns Bahrain's Rights Violations

The UN's high commissioner for human rights has slammed the Bahraini regime over the dire human rights situation in the Persian Gulf kingdom.

Navi Pillay decried Bahraini regime's imposition of death sentences on anti-government protesters and prosecution of doctors and nurses who have treated those injured by Saudi-backed security forces.

Expressing deep concern over the deteriorating situation in the oil-rich Persian Gulf country, she blasted the arrest of “hundreds” of anti-government protesters, and putting on trial at “military courts” 23 doctors and 24 nurses and sentencing to death four protesters, dpa reported late Thursday.'
