Amnesty International says human rights are still being violated in Bahrain despite promises of reform.

As the country prepares to host the Grand Prix, Amnesty warns "no-one should be under any illusions that the country's human rights crisis is over".

More than 40 people died in last year's unrest and 1,600 were arrested.

While Amnesty recognises security forces are sometimes faced with violence it is urging them to respect international human rights law.
