Bahrain: 2011-2-16

In the last hour police raided the Pearl Roundabout in Manama. The protestors were camped when teargas, buckshot and rubber bullets were fired into the square from the bridge overlooking the circle. When the crowd stampeded away from the bridge another barrage from the opposite direction scattered them. The circle has been locked down with no one allowed in or out. Many were wounded and some deaths have occurred. Men, women and children were injured. This attack came after the king promised to investigate the previous deaths from buckshot.

If the royal family thought to quash the protest they are greatly mistaken. Violence will increase greatly after this. They have poked an anthill. In the Arab world the order of precedence is God:Family:Government. The government is toast after this.
