On the edge of the capital, Manama, thousands gather for the funeral of a man brutally murdered by the police. “With our soul, with our blood we defend you, Bahrain!” the crowd shout. It’s a scene repeated over and over in Bahrain, where killings and funerals have become the norm in a nation torn apart by protests and a brutal government crackdown. Hospital workers have also been targeted for speaking to the media, with reports of hospital staff being beaten by police: “Every doctor that speaks out in the media has been arrested,” says a doctor at Salimaniya Hospital. As a result of this suppression the government has been accused of human rights violations – allegations that have been strongly denied by the Minister for Foreign Affairs. But with hundreds missing and violent arrests continuing, Bahrain is a nation crippled with fear.
