Bahrain Mirror: Head of the monitoring and documentation unit at the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, Enas Oun, said that only 6 of the 105 released by royal pardon on the anniversary of Bahrain's National Day are political detainees. 

Oun wondered "Is this the breakthrough and the reforms the people of Bahrain are waiting for and deserve?"

King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa issued a royal decree pardoning and releasing 105 inmates sentenced in various cases, after serving a period of sentences.

Prior to the decree, some websites promoted that a large number of political prisoners would be released. However, this was not achieved.
