Bahrain Mirror: The aunt of detained Sheikh Mirza al-Mahrous died today (Wednesday November 9, 2016), after authorities did not allow him to visit her in the hospital.

Al-Mahrous, who is one of Bahrain's most prominent opposition figures detained by the authorities since March 2011, began a hunger strike, after the Jaw Prison administration banned him to visit his aunt who was in the Intensive Care Unit in the hospital.

Prison authorities in Bahrain do not take into consideration the many humanitarian circumstances of the detainees, to the extent that some are denied medical treatment.

The detained opposition figure's family called on the authorities to temporarily release him, for him to take part in his aunt's funeral.
