Hassan Al Bash: What happened to him?

Ok I’m going to start this by saying that I never knew Hassan in real life nor interacted with him on a personal level. I used to follow him for a while on twitter and was intrigued by his level of maturity and understanding and he seemed like a nice guy overall – until a couple of hours ago as of the time I’m writing this post where tweets were passed around about his death and some that he’s missing and the police are looking for him . Hassan Al Bash is a 21 year old Bahraini studying in Newcastle University in the UK.

The GDN released this news report which falls along the line of @Mohammed_Lori ‘s tweet .

Bahraini student missing in Britain

  Posted on » Thursday, January 05, 2012

“MANAMA: A 21-year-old Bahraini student in the UK has been missing for the past five days, reports MOHAMMED AL A’ALI.

Sources told the GDN that university student Hassan Al Bash had left his jacket on a bridge in Newcastle, England, on New Year’s Eve.

His father, Mahmood Al Bash, who is a lawyer, told the GDN that he was planning to travel to the UK to try to find more information.

“According to the latest information given to me, my eldest son is still missing, and I am waiting for more details,” he said.

The Northumbria Police were unable to disclose any information.”*



At this point I’m really confused. I can’t explain how saddened I am by these horrifying news & I can’t possibly imagine how his family and close friends must be feeling right now.  I just hope he’s still alive somewhere and if  not then my prayers goes to the victim and his family and may he  rest in peace.

Below is Hassan’s  Blog that he never got to start, It’s very unfortunate that we might not come to see what Hassan Has to say.



Al Ayam just posted this chilling news report on their website at: http://www.alayam.com/mobile/newsdetails.aspx?id=37732

“قالت مصادر ان طالبا بحرينيا يدرس في جامعـة نيوكـاسل البريطانية، يدعى «ح.م.ا», من أهالي المنامة اختفى منذ 4 أيام في ظروف غامضة، مشيرة الى ان عمليات بحث واسعة عنه قامت بها الشرطة البريطانية اسفرت عن العثور على «جاكيت» يخص الطالب بالقرب من احد الجسور في المدينة. واشار احد الطلبة المقربين له في اتصال مع «الأيام» ان الطالب المفقود لم يكن يعاني من مشاكل نفسية. واضافت المصادر ان الشرطة عثرت على رسالة في «الجاكيت» يوجه فيها اعتذاراً الى اهله. وذكرت المصادر ان عمليات البحث عن الطالب ما زالت مستمرة ولم يتم العثور عليه حتى الآن، مشيرة الى أن الشرطة تعتبره مفقودا. وقالت ان السفارة البحرينية في لندن ووزارة الخارجية تتواصل مع عائلة الطالب المفقود.”*
