MANAMA: Bahrain is claiming that a jailed activist on a two-month hunger strike shows no signs of critical medical problems and has been taking fluids orally or by an IV drip.

The health details released by authorities on Tuesday are an apparent attempt to counter growing international pressures on the Gulf state after a judicial panel refused Denmark’s request to take custody of Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, who is also a Danish citizen.

Al-Khawaja and seven other opposition leaders were sentenced to life in prison last year on charges of trying to overthrow the Sunni-ruled system. Bahrain’s majority Shias began an uprising in February 2011 seeking a greater political voice.

The official Bahrain News Agency says an appeals hearing for Al-Khawaja is set for April 23.
