Bahrain: End prison ordeal for Nabeel Rajab immediately: here.
Paris-Geneva, November 27, 2013.

This decision, published on July 25, 2013, was eventually passed on to the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders (FIDH-OMCT joint programme) on November 26, who welcomes this decision and calls upon the Bahraini government to immediately comply with this UN decision and release Mr. Rajab: here.

Manama, 7 hours, 20 minutes ago
At least 25 people have died in worksite accidents in Bahrain this year.
Bangladeshi Abdulsattar Abdullatif, 38, became the latest victim when a rope on the makeshift lift he was using snapped and crashed to the ground from the fourth floor, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
It happened at a building under construction in Gufool on Monday.
A Labour Ministry spokesman confirmed an investigation had been launched into the cause of Abdullatif’s death, who was reportedly not wearing any safety equipment.
