Bahrain Mirror: Mother of one of the young political detainees in Bahrain said that the lives of 60 children, who are arrested over political background, have become in danger after they launched a hunger strike against the deteriorating health conditions and return of scabies and other skin diseases.

Human rights activist Ibtisam Al-Saegh quoted a mother of a detained child as saying "60 mothers are concerned about their children's fate," wondering about the children's right and to what extent the Corrective Justice Law is applied.

Through their hunger strike, detained children in Dry Dock Prison are trying to get more time in the yard to expose to sunlight as part of skin diseases prevention. However, the prison administration further harassed them and threatened them with more restrictions.
