Prominent Bahraini Cleric Ayatollah Issa Qassem Once More Hospitalized


Prominent cleric in Bahrain, Ayatollah Issa Qassem was taken to the hospital on Sunday night, Bahraini sources said.

Ayatollah Qassem, who lost his citizenship and has been for more than one year under house arrest, was hospitalized on Sunday after suffering hip and leg problems that are making it difficult for him to walk.

Sheikh Maytham al-Salman of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights said on Monday Qassim needs further medical care.

Activists cited residents living close to the house of Ayatollah Qassem’s house as saying that regime forces arrested the prominent cleric’s son and son-in law as they were accompanying him in the ambulance vehicles.
