Bahrain Mirror: Americans for Democracy and Human Rights in Bahrain said that young detainees face health and psychological risks due to the inhumane treatment they receive while continuing to be denied basic rights such as visits, food, clothing, and education, contrary to allegations of prison reform.

The organization noted in tweets on "X" platform that "the Dry Dock prison administration ignores the repeated demands of detainees and practices a policy of procrastination against them, revealing that allegations of allowing prisoners to pursue their education is only a new attempt to whitewash the image of human rights violations."

28 young detainees in Dry Dock continue their hunger strike for the third consecutive day, as a result of the prison administration's disregard for their rights. The young detainees are also demanding a retrial.
