Bahrania has already posted the details about this, but just to make sure that everone visiting here is up to speed: as of this posting there are now a total of three moderators of BahrainOnline.org who are being held in Hoora prison. They are Ali Abdulemam (who also has his own blog), Hussain Yousif, and Mohammed Al Mousawi. Free them all.
Also, this story has been getting some much needed international attention. To name a few:
- Reuters: Bahrain arrests man over critical Web site
- Reporters without Borders: Online forum moderator arrested
- Committee to Protect Bloggers (CPB): Bahraini Blogger Detained
Curt Hopkins, the Director of the CPB will also be speaking about the situation on BBC Radio 5 tonight. Many thanks to our fellow bloggers around the world, and especially Curt, for getting the story out.-------
Also, Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine.com reported the story on MSNBC earlier tonight.
