    In Bahrain, human-rights workers say at least 50 medical staff are still missing after a crackdown on hospital care for injured anti-government demonstrators.

    There are fears that some of the detained staff could face stiff sentences for treating protesters. Among them is Dr al-Akri, a prominent physician arrested on March 17 during a military raid at Salmaniyah Hospital in Manama.

    His wife, Fareeda, was also arrested and beaten in custody last Tuesday. Al Jazeera spoke to her about her arrest and the fears she has about the safety of her husband.
