Allegations Against Bahraini Regime

There have been a series of disturbing allegations against the Bahraini regime despite the lack of coverage in Western media. This conflict has escalated and the Bahraini ruling family, the Al-Khalifa’s, makes promises of reform but engages activities that are extremely disturbing. As was noted earlier, the U.S. sent a labor team to investigate charges of firings within the country and the U.S. has not shipped arms to Bahrain pending the BICI report. The following are some other allegations that we should be aware of.
