'Prominent female lawyer detained by Bahraini regime in Sanabis' [William Beeman @ PressTV]

Fresh crackdown in Bahrain. Regime forces have arrested yet another prominent female rights activist and lawyer there.

Amira al-Bahrani was abducted during a nighttime raid on her house in the city of Sanabis. We do not have any information about why she was arrested or her whereabouts. 7 other activists were also detained by regime forces in separate raids in A'ali area near the capital Manama. No further details have been provided about those raids either. The Al Khalifah regime is under fire for its harsh crackdown on rights activists and pro-democracy protesters. The kingdom has been gripped by anti-monarchy rallies since February 2011.
