UN condemns Bahrain

UN condemns jail sentence for Bahrain medics – Middle East – Al Jazeera English.

I can only get sad when I hear that medics get sentenced for what they do best – save the injured. Now it seems they have the obligation in Bahrein to ask which sides the injured person is on and can only help if the injured is pro- government.

One of the things I always admired with becoming a medic is to help regardless of background and without explanations. So utterly saddening to see this government making it about politics and their agenda.
