    Bahrain authorities say an imprisoned human rights activist who has been on a hunger strike for more than 50 days has been moved to a prison clinic “for constant medical observation and care.”

    A government statement on Wednesday says activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja was moved to the clinic on Tuesday.

    Al-Khawaja, who is also a Danish citizen, is serving a life sentence for his role in last year’s uprising in the Gulf kingdom.

    On Tuesday, the Danish government said it has been “exerting maximum efforts” to have al-Khawaja sent to Denmark for medical treatment.

    Al-Khawaja has been refusing food since Feb. 8.

    Amnesty International has urged Bahrain to free him because of fears he could die.
