Bahraini princess accused of torturing hospital medical staff
A BAHRAINI princess has been accused of involvement in the torture of detainees during the country’s suppression of anti-government protesters this year.
Some of the doctors who have been sentenced to lengthy jail terms for supporting the Shia-led protests against the ruling al-Khalifa family have alleged that Sheikha Noora bint Ibrahim al-Khalifa beat prisoners with sticks and a rubber hose, and gave electric shocks to the face with a cable.
The princess works as an undercover police detective in counter-narcotics. Born into the third tier of the royal family, she is believed to be a cousin of Queen Sabika bint Ibrahim al-Khalifa.
