This is Khadija AlMousawi, Zainab's mother and I am writing this message on her behalf, because she is too weak to write.
In the past few days Zainab's health has deteriorated and she has had trouble breathing with fast heart beat. In the last two days she was having trouble standing up or sitting straight and I had to give her water using a spoon.
In such circumstances she was visited by people from human rights organizations who promised to do all they can for her detained family and requested that Zainab ends her hunger strike especially since she could not speak on behalf of her loved ones in detention due to the hunger strike.
Moreover, Nabeel Rajab the Head of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, who is also a close friend of the family, requested the same. Family members who visited Zainab were extremely worried about her health.
Based on these requests, Zainab decided to end her hunger strike on its tenth day, which is today, thanking all those who joined her and those who supported her all over the world. She would also like to thank all the journalists who wrote about her case and would like to tell everyone that we got news about her father Abdulhadi, her husband Wafi AlMajed, and her brother-in-law Hussein Ahmed as the Ministry of Interior contacted us and asked that we take clothes for them.
As soon as she feels better, Zainab will be writing to thank you all herself.
