Denmark 'demands' release of Bahrain activist - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

A jailed activist who has been on hunger strike in a Bahrain prison for the last two months is now in a very critical
condition, Denmark's prime minister has said.

Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, a Shia activist with dual Danish and Bahraini nationality, was sentenced with other opposition activists to life in jail over an alleged plot to topple the Sunni monarchy during a month-long protest a year ago.

"Denmark demands the Danish-Bahraini citizen and human rights activist Khawaja be freed," said Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt on Tuesday at a press conference.
