NEWBAHRAINMore than 30 protesters including 5 women have been arrested either from the streets or after raids on their houses without any arrest warrant in Manama, capital city of Bahrain.
There are several reports of violence against women, among them a direct injury on foot after police

aimed a sound grenade on a foot of a women. Such acts are not alien to the police forces of Bahrain.
Human Rights Defender Zainab Al-Khawaja who is still in prison was severely injured and got her leg broken after police shot a teargas canister to her foot while protesting.
Police sprayed pepper spray on face and eyes of Ma’asooma Alsayed while arresting her. She disclosed her condition in a telephonic call from the police station she was still feeling pain and heat in her eyes because of intensity of pepper spray, and she was feeling pain in her hands. She also said during a phone call that she saw another arrested protester Ali Alekri in a pitiful condition and his clothes were torn from frequent beatings.
At least 29 arrested protesters (men and women) were presented to the public prosecution on Sunday and received detention orders of one month pending investigation for most of them while Ma’asooma Alsayed received a one week detention pending investigation.
Bahrain center for human rights strongly condemned the government’s fierce crackdown on whoever exercises freedom of expression and peaceful assembly and the attack on women and activists for exposing the crimes committed in Bahrain by the authorities.

“We immediately demand the release of all detained activists and protesters, putting an end for the use of violence against peaceful protesters and allowing Bahrainis their right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly,” it said.

Since the hospitals are under military control for over a year now, protesters are unable to receive proper treatment at hospital because they fear arrest. The hospitals have been ordered to report any injury related to protest to the police. Instead they have to arrange home-based treatment. Police have continued to throw excessive amount of tear gas on the crowded residential and market area of Manama where most houses are small and old which teargas can easily enter through it’s cracks.

The peaceful protestors including women who had been arrested were identified as: Maryam Al-Khazaz and Sajida Ahmed Hassan Al-Hubaili from Sitra, Massoma Al-Sayed from Bilad Al-Qadeem, Fatima Abdulemam, Mohammed Al-Tal from Tubli, Mahdi Abu-Aish, Salman Abdullah Saad and Ali Ahmed Al-Ekri from Al-Daih, Taher Al-Ghanmi and Qassim Abdul-Hassan Fateel from Bani-Jamra, Ali Ebrahim Al-Masjan, Mohammed Ebrahim Al-Masjan, Jaffar Mohammed Al-Manami, Mahmood Al-Manami, Yaqoob Abdul-Jalil, Hussain Abbas Abdulnabi, Ali Abbas Ahmed, Mohammed Abduhussain, Ammar Abdullah Mohammed and Kumail Jaffar Al-Manami from Al-Meqshaa, Ali Mirza Abdul-Nabi, Jalaa Al-Majidi, Mohammed Majeed Bahman, Ibrahim Al-Moqhawi, Hassan Al-Khazaz.
