Bahrain police ‘continue to torture detainees’ | BBC News

Human Rights Watch has accused Bahrain’s police of continuing to beat and torture detainees, including minors.

The report comes nearly six months after an independent inquiry prompted the government to pledge reforms.

The country insists it is committed to putting the recommendations of its own report into the handling of protests in 2011 into practice.

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