Leading Bahrain activist grilled over Le Monde article

Bahraini authorities say they have interrogated detained opposition leader Nabil Rajab for spreading “false information” in an article published in French daily Le Monde that accused Gulf monarchies of fomenting “extremism”. Rajab, who already faces 15 years in jail for his criticism of Manama’s main ally Saudi Arabia, was accused of making comments that “harm the interests” of Bahrain and other Gulf countries, the official BNA news agency said Thursday. It said the case had been transferred to the prosecutor’s office and added that Rajab, a leading opposition activist and the founder of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, denied writing the article in question.
