Twenty international rights groups have issued a joint statement calling on Bahrain to release all opposition leaders, political activists and journalists amid the coronavirus outbreak. 
Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are among the signatories to the statement. The rights bodies said all prisoners of conscience remain detained in Bahrain solely for peacefully exercising their right to freedom of expression. Manama has been engaged in a heavy-handed crackdown since a popular uprising began in the Kingdom back in 20-11. It has detained thousands of activists since then.
