Video has emerged of Haji Karim Fakhrawi, the fourth protester that Bahrain's Shiite opposition party says has died while in police custody. (Thirty people have been killed since the protests against the e Sunni-ruled country began in February; hundreds have been detained.) According to Bahrain's official news agency, Fakhrawi died of kidney failure. However, human-rights activists and Fakhrawi's family members say the marks and bruises on his body suggest torture. Opposition leaders allege that the three other Bahrainis who died in custody over the past two weeks were also tortured.
