Weaponizing Tear Gas
Bahrain's Unprecedented Use of Toxic Chemical Agents Against Civilians
PHR "The Bahrain government’s indiscriminate use of tear gas as a weapon has resulted in the maiming, blinding, and even killing of civilian protesters, and must stop at once while the government reassesses the use of such toxic chemical agents. PHR's (Physicians for Human Righst) new report details the findings of our investigation. This report is based on interviews with more than 100 Bahraini citizens, including victims of civil rights violations, corroborating witnesses, civil society leaders, and government officials. It documents the authors' findings, based on physical examinations and medical records."
