Bloody clowns. And what's the point of spending millions of advertizing money, to promote their Bahrain Financial Centre ?

Ban condemns 'harsh' Bahrain jail terms

UN leader Ban Ki-moon on Friday strongly criticized "harsh" prison sentences ordered in Bahrain against 20 medical workers who treated protesters and called for the release of all political prisoners.

Ban "expresses his deep concern over the harsh sentences handed down in Bahrain to civilians -- medical professionals, teachers and others -- by the Court of National Safety," said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky.

"These proceedings were conducted under conditions that raised serious questions of due process irregularities."

The 20 medics were jailed for up to 15 years on Thursday for their roles in pro-reform protests crushed in mid-March by the national safety court, under a special emergency law declared by King Hamad.

The sentences were imposed on Thursday only days after Ban had met Bahrain's king on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York to discuss efforts to restore stability in the Gulf state.

"The secretary general calls for the release of all political detainees and reiterates his appeal to the Bahraini authorities at the highest level to ensure the application of due process and respect for international human rights norms," Nesirky added.

Ban discussed the Bahrain political crisis with Gulf Cooperation Council secretary general Abdullatif al Zayani on Thursday.

Clashes in Bahrain, king warns against disunity by Andrew Hammond

MANAMA (Reuters) - Bahraini riot police waged pitched battles with petrol-bomb throwing youths on Sunday as violence escalated before the February 14 anniversary of an uprising last year, while King Hamad suggested protesters calling for his overthrow was a "problem for national unity."

Teenagers blocked off streets in the village of Sanabis, taunting police as "cowards" and "mercenaries" because some are thought to be Pakistani or Yemeni.
