Bahrain Mirror: Reporters without Borders urged the Bahraini authorities on Tuesday (November 24, 2015) to abolish the punishment handed down to photographer Sayed Ahmed Al-Mousawi. A Bahraini court had sentenced Al-Mousawi to 10 years in prison and ordered stripping him of his nationality.
The organization said in a statement that it condemns this arbitrary trial of a journalist who just covered pro-democracy demonstrations.
"It is outrageous that a journalist has been treated like a terrorist. Arbitrary arrests of peaceful dissidents, systematic torture and impunity have turned Bahrain into a dangerous country for those who speak out," stressed Alexandra El Khazen, the head of the Reporters without Borders Middle East desk.
