Bahrain Mirror: Activists on social media outlets said that the security authorities arrested two children from Diraz and presented them to the Public Prosecution that decided to arrest them for 7 days pending investigation.
The security authorities arrested on Monday (October 2, 2017) child Jassim Abduljalil (13 years) and Hussein Ali (14 years), without knowing the reason behind their arrest.
The International Center for Supporting Rights and Freedoms condemned this step, stressing that "the International Law bound the state's authorities to treat children according to special measures, as imprisoning a child will negatively affect him on the psychological level and affect his studies as well". The center further stated that the child will be vulnerable to security pursuits in the future because his name will be registered at the security parties as a person who has been previously convicted and arrested.
