Bahrain Mirror: The Gulf Center for Human Rights said that prominent Bahraini activist Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja's health status started to deteriorate due to the open hunger strike he started since April 12.

In a statement issued (April 23, 2017), the center said, "Since the afternoon of April 18th until today he has had no contact with the prison administration and has not been taken to the prison clinic. He does not know what his current weight, blood sugar, or blood pressure rates are." 

Moreover, the center called at the end of its statement for the "immediate medical evacuation of Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja outside Bahrain as his life is at imminent risk and he needs urgent, proper medical care."
