Bahraini pro-democracy activist Zainab Alkhawaja tweeted,

“THEY JUST CAME! They took my dad, my dads blood is still on the stairs! They hit my dad so much! They beat him and he couldn’t breath.”

She wrote the above just minutes after three members of her family were beaten and taken away by masked police officers.

Stand with Ms. Alkhawaja and demand the release of her father, Abdulhadi Alkhawaja »

Mr. Alkhawaja, a prominent human rights activist, was taken along with her daughter’s husband, and brother-in-law. They are among an estimated 600 detainees in custody following weeks of protest.

In the past two months, Bahraini authorities have been brutally cracking down on pro-democracy protesters. Hundreds have been arrested and dozens killed by security forces and troops from neighboring Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
