Eid ul-Fitr, the Muslim holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, is supposed to be a joyous occasion. But in the U.S.-allied Persian Gulf nation of Bahrain, where the Sunni-dominated government has arrested scores of Shi'ite opposition activists in recent weeks, many celebrated in fear.
"Human rights activists have to live in continuous fear because we know we're being targeted by the government," said Ms. al-Khawaja, who fled to London in recent weeks.
"When I was in Bahrain," she added, "I would always make sure to lock the door when I got into the car so just in case they came to get me, I would have time to make one last phone call."
