Bahrain dictatorship’s British arms

This video from February 2011 says about itself:

Public resentment against the ruling classes is growing in the wider Middle East amid bloody attacks on demonstrators, as the region plunges into chaos. In Bahrain, King Hamad has asked his eldest son, to start a national dialogue to resolve the political crisis in the country.

However, the Shia opposition group says it will join talks only after the government resigns and the troops behind a brutal crackdown leave the streets. Reports suggest riot police used supplies made by British companies to clear the protest. Human rights activist Barnaby Pace says the UK has been reckless in its arms sales.
