A Bahraini woman died Saturday after lighting herself on fire Friday to protest her son's continued arrest, Bahrain news outlet Al Wasat reported Saturday.

The report described the woman as having fallen ill following her son's arrest. He had been detained since April.

Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa had imposed a state of emergency that lasted between March 15 and June 1 as part of a government crackdown on mass protests that had broken out mostly among the country's Shi'ite  majority population.
