The Bahraini government reportedly executed three men convicted of crimes in two separate cases on Saturday, July 27. Two of the men executed were convicted of killing a police officer in an attack alleged to have been organized by individuals in Iran in 2017, and the other of killing an imam in 2018. Additionally, two of the men executed were reportedly Shi'a activists who had been sentenced to death on "terrorism crimes." Iranian state media criticized the executions.
Shi'a demonstrations are possible in Bahrain over the coming days amid a heightened security presence. Clashes between security forces and demonstrators cannot be ruled out around any possible protests.
Individuals in Bahrain are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all gatherings and protests due to potential violence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
