Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini authorities renewed on Thursday (August 25, 2016) the detention of prominent Shiite cleric and director of Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim's office, Sheikh Hussain Al-Mahrous, for 15 days pending investigation.

The authorities detained Al-Mahrous along with other Shiite clerics on August 10 and the prosecution ordered his arrest for 15 days over illegal assembling, based on his participation in the open sit-in protest in front of Sheikh Isa Qassim's house in Diraz.

The authorities have launched the most severe campaign against opposition and Shia majority since March 2011. They toughened the sentence against opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman, revoked the citizenship of spiritual leader Sheikh Isa Qassim, arrested and summoned dozens of Shiite clerics.
