Hundreds of prisoners in Bahrain suspend monthlong hunger strike as crown prince visits US

  • Human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, currently jailed in Bahrain, has resumed his hunger strike due to a lack of medical care. He participated in the 2011 Arab Spring uprising and has since been tortured and suffered from health issues.
  • Al-Khawaja is one of many prisoners at the Jaw Rehabilitation and Reform Center who went on a hunger strike to protest their incarceration conditions. They suspended the strike after authorities promised better healthcare, limited isolation, expanded visitor rights, and extended daylight exposure. However, al-Khawaja was denied a medical appointment, prompting him to resume his hunger strike.
  • Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa of Bahrain, who is visiting the US, will meet with Secretary of State Antony Blinken to sign a security and economic agreement. Al-Khawaja's daughters, Maryam and Zeynep, plan to travel to Bahrain to advocate for their father's release, risking their own arrest.
