Suppression of Bahraini protesters continues concurrent with a media blackout from news networks in different parts of the world and region. Security forces suppressed peaceful marches that took place in many parts of Bahrain, causing injuries to protestors who received treatment at home to avoid the checkpoints leading to the only hospital in the country, Salomaneya hospital.
Political consultant for Secretary General of Al Wefaq says that the ministry of interior affairs is a failure since he cannot ensure his employees abide by the law; though the ministry is purportedly committed to human rights and freedom despite systematic violations.
Marches took place during dialogue between the opposition and the regime through the "Darkness Gangs" campaign that was launched by opposition leaders in order to expose the raids on homes by security forces and other human rights violations. Meanwhile, the king stressed the necessity of respecting the constitution, refraining from using force or discrimination.
