Meanwhile in Bahrain …

The Guardian reports that tens of thousands have staged anti-government demonstrations in Bahrain.

The rallies come after rights activist Nabeel Rajab was arrested again for his writing on Twitter.

In adition to Mr. Rajab’s arrest, the article notes the arrest and detention of an 11-year old for his role in the protests earlier in the month.

Oh and to add insult to injury the child was forced to write his school exams while behind bars. There has to be a human rights violation in that.
