Bahrain Should Release Zainab Al-Khawaja & her Baby – says US State Dept


AhlulBayt News Agency – The US Department of State urged the Bahraini authorities to immediately release the human rights defender Zainab Al-Khawaja and her baby.

Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner said in a press conference held in the State Department’s headquarters that Foreign Minister of Bahrain Khalid Al Khalifa announced the government’s decision to release Al-Khawaja at a press conference with State Secretary Kerry on April 9th in Manama.

“But we understand that she still remains in detention with her infant son – or infant child. We would urge the Government of Bahrain to follow through with its publicly announced plans to release her as soon as possible,” he added.
