Bahrain Center for Human Rights Debunks Government Claims

[Added: Doctors without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières calls upon the Bahraini government to stop using medical facilities as instruments of repression.  

"A report released today by MSF illustrates how Bahrain’s hospitals and health centers are no longer safe havens for the sick or injured, but rather places to be feared.
"“Wounds, especially those inflicted by distinctive police and military gunfire, are used to identify people for arrest, and the denial of medical care is being used by Bahraini authorities to deter people from protesting,” said Latifa Ayada, MSF medical coordinator. “Health facilities are used as bait to identify and arrest those who dare seek treatment.”"]
