  1. UN: Bahrain should consider transferring striker

    UNITED NATIONS —

    (AP) — U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says Bahrain should consider transferring a jailed activist who is on a two-month hunger strike to Denmark for medical treatment on humanitarian grounds.

    Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, who is a Danish citizen and has been refusing food since Feb. 8, is serving a life sentence for his role in last year’s uprising by the island nation’s Shiite majority against a Western-backed Sunni monarchy.

    The Bahrain News Agency said Sunday the Supreme Judicial Council refused to hand him over to Denmark because the law prevents transfers of “accused and convicted persons to foreign countries.”

    U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky told reporters Monday that “in cases where there is a hunger strike, the health and well-being of the person should be the foremost concern.”

    CAIRO —

    A Cairo airport official says a prominent Bahraini activist has been barred from entering Egypt upon the request of a security agency.

    Nabeel Rajab has been documenting human rights abuses in Bahrain during the island kingdom’s 14-month revolt by its Shiite majority that seeks greater rights from Sunni rulers.

    The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media, did not elaborate on the Wednesday decision.

    Pro-democracy groups in Egypt say authorities have been cracking down on networking between regional activists. Rajab is the second Bahraini activist to face obstacles entering Egypt in recent weeks.
