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.
