MANAMA - Thirty people were wounded in Bahrain's crackdown on protesters last week, including 22 who who are facing investigation over their role and five who are in a critical condition, the government said on Wednesday.

At least 20 people have been killed in Bahrain since the start of protests last month, including four policemen, and human rights groups and doctors have complained that access to medical care has been hampered since security forces raided Bahrain's busiest medical complex last Wednesday.

Bahraini security forces cleared a number of protesters who had set up protest camps in the car park of Salmaniya hospital, and surrounded the hospital, leaving one entrance open.
