Leading Bahrain activist Zainab al-Khawaja detained

A prominent pro-democracy activist in Bahrain has been detained for seven days after being arrested for allegedly insulting police, rights groups say.

Zainab al-Khawaja was held on Saturday night after sitting in a road leading to the Bahrain International Circuit, a day before the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Bahraini police have once again brutally dispersed a crowd of protesters calling for the release of a jailed activist serving a life sentence. Witnesses say the Bahraini security forces used tear gas and water cannons against the demonstrators: here.

Bahrain: Grand Prix races on people’s blood: here.

Mark Steel: Give credit to Bernie Ecclestone – every despot should have a Grand Prix: here.
