Human Rights Watch has called on the European Union and the US to help release Zainab al-Khawaja, a prominent Bahraini activist and political dissident who was taken into custody by the monarchy’s security forces earlier this month.

Khawaja, who is a Danish citizen, and her 1-year-old son Abdulhadi were arrested in their home in the capital city of Manama on March 14.

“Zainab al-Khawaja’s imprisonment will rightly bring shame on Bahrain and they should find no tacit support for their actions from their allies,” Joe Stork, HRW’s deputy Middle East director, said Thursday.
