Bahrain clamp on illegal clinics
Manama, October 6, 2012
Bahrain’s authorities are struggling to control the spread of illegal clinics being used to treat rioters injured in protests, despite many being closed following a crackdown launched in February.
They have continued to sprout up in homes in troubled villages across the country, said sources.
"We are aware medications to these facilities are being clandestinely taken in for giving emergency treatment to patients," they said.
"Many such places have been identified and sealed but many more continue to operate.”
"These seriously compromise patient safety and some incidents have resulted in fatalities as well as complications."
Protesters have recently stepped up violence, attacking police with firebombs and iron rods as well as blocking key highways with burning tyres. – TradeArabia News Service
