Relatives were prevented from leaving the hospital with the body of a protester, so his remains were refrigerated for the night in hopes that they would be permitted to have the burial the next day.

    attacking peaceful protesters including children at 3 in the morning in their sleep can’t be justified. Forces preventing ambulances from picking the injured at the pearl roundabout and hospitals instructed not to treat any injured people and doctors were beaten- what kind of cold blooded people are these people? Where is the humanity? Army tanks still on the streets of Bahrain. All of this because people were demanding their rights that they were deprived from. EVERY SINGLE PERSON THAT GOES ABOUT WITH HIS DAY TODAY, LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED IS HEARTLESS AND DOESN’T DESERVE HIS SOUL. Pray for Bahrain *BH*
