Bahrain Mirror - (Exclusive): Social media users circulated a screenshot for a "WhatsApp" conversation, showing a text by deputy head of Bahrain's Consultative Council, Jamal Fakhro, sending a picture for US model Jailyne Ojeda, and presenting it as a complementary gift to the Bahrainis besieged in Diraz.

The conversation shows how some members, who are appointed by the King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, belittle the suffering of thousands of people under the authorities-imposed siege for more than 4 months.

Fakhro, who is usually hosted by news channels to defend the authorities' violent actions against the opposition, sent the picture in a group chat that also includes other members from the legislative authority.

Authorities imposed a siege on Diraz, an area inhabited by more than 30 thousand residents, after thousands of protesters gathered outside the house of religious leader Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, in protest of the revocation of his citizenship.
