Daily protests in Bahrain amid human rights abuse claims
With preparations well underway for Sunday's Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix, a leading human rights group has said torture and ill-treatment are continuing in the Gulf kingdom.
Amnesty International says it has evidence of people being kept in prison for participating in peaceful anti-government protests, and that security forces are using excessive and unnecessary force against demonstrators.
Bahrain's Government has rejected many of the claims.
The BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes says demonstrations against the authorities are a daily event.
