Bahrain’s security forces tortured detainees in the years after its 2011 protests despite a government promise to stop such abuses in the island nation, according to a new report released Monday. The Human Rights Watch report on Bahrain, home to the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet, corresponds with accounts of abuse provided by Amnesty International and local activists. (AP Photo/Hasan Jamali, file)
