"Jailed activists are being tortured to death in Al Khalifa prisons," Mehdi Hossein al-Bazun told FNA on Monday.

He said in most cases, people are abducted by Al Khalifa regime from the streets, their homes or places of work and taken to official or secret jails of the regime. "The Al Khalifa regime has used all weapons to suppress its opponents and it even brought forces and weapons from Saudi Arabia and Jordan, but to no avail."

Al-Bazun underlined that by suppressing, arresting and torturing to death of the Bahraini nation, the Bahraini regime cannot change its image before the international community.

In similar remarks last week, another Bahraini activist disclosed that the Al Khalifa regime has hired mercenaries from foreign countries to suppress people’s peaceful protests.

"Some Bahraini officials have had several visits to Pakistan, Indonesia and Malaysia asking them to dispatch weapons and manpower to help Manama with the crackdown on popular protests," Adel Ebrahim told FNA.

The Bahraini activist noted that the Al Saud regime has also called on Pakistan and Malaysia to gather support for its military forces deployed in Bahrain.

"The Al Khalifa regime still continues its suppression of a nation who wants equality, social  justice and its righteous rights," Ebrahim said, adding, "The Bahraini nation will not surrender to the Al Khalifa regime’s heavy-handed tactics."

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February 2011, calling for an end to the al-Khalifa dynasty.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states – Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar – were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 2011, to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

So far, hundreds of protesters have been killed, hundreds have gone missing and thousands of others have been injured.
