Bloodbath in Bahrain, pro-democracy fight continues

This video is called Bahrain: “It was a complete bloodbath”.

Bahrain: Army patrols and tanks locked down the capital of this tiny Gulf kingdom after riot police swinging clubs and firing tear gas smashed into demonstrators, many of them sleeping, in a pre-dawn assault Thursday that uprooted their protest camp demanding political change. Medical officials said four people were killed. Hours after the attack on Manama’s main Pearl Square, the military announced on state TV that it had “key parts” of the capital under its control and that gatherings were banned: here.

From Twitter in Bahrain: All the Salmaniya hospital staff are out on a march including doctors and nurses, demanding the resignation of the minister of health. Doctors at Salmanya hospital are protesting against the minister as no ambulances were available in Bahrain [after the bloody police crackdown on peaceful pro-democracy protesters at the Lulu roundabout]. Dear International Community Where Are Thou???

“We were asleep and they started slicing through our tent” – 4 protesters dead, dozens injured in Bahrain: here.

More Twitter messages from Bahrain: News about corpse beside Al-Kamis police centre. Every crime against humanity must be covered by photographers.

Four young men have died as a result of this morning’s attack.

Still reports of ambulances, paramedics & doctors being attacked by riot police, preventing them from assisting the injured.

From Dan Nolan of Al Jazeera on Twitter: AJE reporter in Bahrain reports seeing 3 dead bodies from tonight’s crackdown. He reports that horrific pic was caused by beating with batons.

Note to Manama, capital of Bahrain: lesson #1 (from everywhere around you) – if you attack your own people, it is the beginning of the end.

Twitter: The best those of us in the US can do for the people of Bahrain is to demand an end to military and economic support of dictators.

UPDATE from Al Jazeera:

An Al Jazeera correspondent, who cannot be named for security reasons, said on Thursday that “clashes were no longer limited to one place…they are now spread out in different parts of the city”.

Another Al Jazeera online producer said that booms could be heard from different parts of the city, suggesting that “tear-gas is being used to disperse the protesters in several neighbourhoods”.

Populations across the Middle East and North Africa continue to express opposition to their respective governments, demanding political rights and pressing for economic gains, in an unprecedented wave of unrest and resistance: here.
