A Bahrain rights group said that sexual abuse and torture have been widespread and systematic in jails in the Gulf island nation during a yearlong crackdown. The report was released in Beirut because the group is barred in Bahrain. A Bahrain government spokesperson said in an email that "the Government of Bahrain takes allegations of human rights violations very seriously. Bahrain has a zero-tolerance policy towards mistreatment of any kind and treats such allegations with the utmost seriousness. The Kingdom's independent oversight institutions such as the Ombudsman and Special Investigation Unit will investigate any allegation of mistreatment thoroughly and transparently. Pray that the human rights violations will be stopped. Pray that the victims will get justice (The Bible, Proverbs 21:15).

Rights group: Bahraini authorities abuse, torture detainees
