As Bahrain is torn apart by protests and brutal government repression, Video Journalist Yaara Bou Melhem gains access to investigate a series of mysterious deaths and disappearances. Yaara had difficulty even getting into Bahrain, and what she eventually found there was a regime determined to keep protesters quiet and out of the media. But she sets about investigating the country's dark secret of disappearances and deaths, including the backlash against the killing of a young father of two, Hani Jumah, in mysterious circumstances. In this report for SBS TV Dateline, Yaara hears of the persecution and fear of those wanting to speak out, but who face violent attacks for standing up for democracy, even in the hospitals where they're sent for treatment.
