Thousands of Bahraini people participated today in the funeral of the youth Mohammed Ali Mushaima (23 years old) at Aldaih village - west of the capital Manama. Mushaima passed away in custody after neglecting his deteriorated medical condition by the prison administration.

Mohammed was arrested from the hospital by the army last year while he was receiving his treatment of sickle cell disease. He was sentenced for 7 years. He complained from a sickle cell disease crisis few day ago and the prison administration neglected his complains. He was shifted to Salmaniya medical compels thence and died there Tuesday morning.

The thousands of mourners that attended the funeral, shouted angrily against the King Hamad and the royal family condemning them for the death of the detained protester.

This new crime is only 3 days after killing a child martyr at Saddad village -western south of the capital Manama- by attacking him through shotgun from a very close distance. These human rights violations came only few days after the Geneva session where the Bahraini regime accepted the international community recommendations.

Eid Al Fitr is supposed to be one of the happiest occasions of the year marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. While families usually gather for joyful celebrations, this year in Bahrain, people share condolences instead of holiday greetings. With the death of 16 year old Hussam Al Haddaq, who was allegedly shot and beaten by Bahraini security forces, a 3 day period of mourning was declared in place of the usual Eid celebrations. Though the people of Bahrain face increasing human rights abuses, violence, and suppression by security forces, they continue to demonstrate, demanding freedom, dignity and adherence to the constitution.

Children are suffering the consequences of resistance as well, with approximately 90 children, mostly between 15 and 17 years of age, arrested and detained in Bahraini prisons; some families do not know whereabout of their child. Bahrainis protest mistreatment of children demanding protection of their basic human rights and a stop to the brutal treatment.
