    Today in Bahrain hundreds of people attended the funeral of a 35-year-old man who died after inhaling tear gas from regime forces. Jaffar al-Taweel in Sitra, a village near the capital Manama, suffered inhalation during a protest earlier this month, according to local activists. The government crackdown on protesters continues. On Tuesday, 13 were sentenced to 10 years in jail for allegations of attacking police. Also this week, Zainab al Khawaja and her father Abdulhadi began a dry hunger strike to protest their incarceration, according to lawyers.

    As the protests continue, human rights groups are calling for the release of Nabeel Rajab, president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights. Rajab is serving a two-year sentence for charges related to his use of Twitter and social media. Regular protests have been ongoing in Bahrain, a US ally in the region, since 2011.

    For more we’re joined by Jihan Kazerooni, she’s a human rights activist based in Bahrain and vice president of the Bahrain Rehabilitation and Anti-Violence Organization (BRAVO), which works with torture survivors.
