Human rights ‘crisis’ in Bahrain despite reform pledge | BBC News

Human rights are still being violated in Bahrain, despite promises of reform, according to Amnesty International.

Ahead of the Grand Prix in Bahrain this weekend, Amnesty warns “no-one should be under any illusions that the country’s human rights crisis is over”.

Bahrain insists it is “very much committed to implementing” the recommendations of its own report into the handling of protests in 2011.

More than 40 people died in last year’s unrest and 1,600 were arrested.
