Strict security measures at Diraz entrances ahead of F1 race

 

Bahraini security forces have intensified their measures, tightening the ongoing siege imposed on a Shia village since June 2016. 

Witnesses said that security forces deployed an Interior Ministry officer at each checkpoint in a new measure, aiming at identifying foreign reporter covering the Formula 1 tournament who might attempt to enter the village to report what is taking place there.

Every year Bahrain hosts the F1 Grand Prix, during which the political and human rights situation in the island kingdom is put under the spotlight with the presence of dozens of journalists and reporters in the country to cover the race.
