Protestations au Bahreïn finissent en massacre
C'est révoltant. Ça se passe en ce moment. La population du Bahreïn proteste contre le gouvernement et ce dernier envoie l'armée pour ouvrir le feu sur les gens, créant un massacre sauvage dans les rues.
Faites circuler. Le monde en entier regarde et proteste contre les tyrannies partout où elles se trouvent. Tout notre soutient et notre coeur va droit à nos frères et soeurs qui tombent au combat et ceux qui luttent contre les tyrannies.
Thousands of protesters poured into a main square in Bahrain's capital Tuesday in an Egypt-style rebellion that sharply escalated pressure on authorities as the Arab push for change gripped the Gulf for the first time.
Security forces have battled demonstrators calling for political reforms and greater freedoms over two days, leading to the deaths of two protesters and the main opposition group vowing to freeze its work in parliament in protest.
The recent wave of popular upheaval in the Middle East has spread to Bahrain. Anti-government demonstrators clashed with riot police in the Arab Gulf state on Monday, leaving at least 2 citizens dead.
In Bahrain, a Sunni Muslim minority rules over a Shia majority who account for 70 percent of the population.
Discontented Shia citizens used the Internet to call for the demonstrations. Up to several thousands of people demonstrated in the outskirts of the capital Manama and elsewhere.
Security police fired teargas and rubber bullets to break up the demonstrations.
Reuters news agency reports that at least 2 citizens have been killed and more than 20 wounded in the clashes.
Tanks in the Bahraini capital, Manama, prevent ambulances from taking the victims of clashes to hospitals, as the pro-democracy uprising in the country has entered its fourth day, a report says.
The report also added that Bahraini security forces attack and beat medical workers who are helping the victims on Thursday.
Pro-democracy uprising in Bahrain has entered its fourth day, as protesters, inspired by revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia, have taken to the streets to protest against the government's dictatorial policies.
More than a dozen army tanks and several military ambulances and trucks are seen in a main highway in the central Manama.
According to witnesses, the nearby roads have almost been cleared of civilian traffic.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE. Regardless if this is a NWO sponsored revolution or not, we must not let these ruthless thugs get away with this open murder!
The Bahrain version of the Amritsar Massacre!
PLEASE REPOST THIS EVERYWHERE!
the clash came hours after funeral mourners and worshippers at Friday prayers called for the toppling of the Western-allied monarchy in the tiny island nation that is home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, the centerpiece of the Pentagon's efforts to confront Iranian military influence. Some members of Bahrain's Sunni ruling system worry that Shiite powerhouse Iran could use Bahrain's majority Shiites as a further foothold in the region.
The White House has expressed "strong displeasure" about the rising tensions in Bahrain.
Day by day, the crisis in Bahrain has deepened.
If the Bahraini government thought for one second that this tactic was going to work, they have another thing or two coming.
There may be a point where all the military suppression in the world is not going to work, and the Bahraini ruling monarchy may just want to consider the possibilities of "getting out of Dodge" while this is possible with all their body parts in tact.
The US cannot come in militarily on the side of the government; that would be reckless and clumsy in the extreme.
But the US cannot have this situation both ways; it cannot continue to support the dictatorship when it encourages peaceful freedom of assembly for the Bahraini people.
As protesters attempted to converge on Pearl Roundabout, a landmark in the capital Manama that has become the principal rallying point of the uprising, soldiers stationed in a nearby skyscraper opened fire...
At least four protesters have been killed and about 60 gone missing after Bahraini security forces storm a protest camp in capital Manama.
Bahraini police broke up a protest camp in Pearl Square in downtown Manama on Thursday and fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the protesters, a Press TV correspondent quoted an unnamed opposition lawmaker as saying.
Bahraini protesters have renamed the square as Tahrir Square, after a square with a similar name in Egypt, which became the center of pro-democracy protests.
Four people were killed during the clashes, bringing to seven the total number of those killed since the protests began on Monday.
It was the early hours of the morning in Bahrain when the security forces launched a major operation to clear a camp of protesters in the capital, Manama.
Men, women and children ran for their lives. Witnesses say it was a brutal assault. Most people were asleep when the police arrived in force, armed with tear gas and rubber bullets. The opposition say three people have been killed. Dozens are thought to have been injured.
Big mistake. The government is now seen as declaring war on its own people, which makes returning to normal relations almost impossible now.
The fastest way to bring down a dictatorship is to force it to act like one where everyone can see it!
Saudi Arabia is sending troops to Bahrain in a move to crack down on pro-democracy protesters who took to the streets in the capital Manama, a political analyst says.
The analyst told PressTV on Tuesday that Riyadh is sending its troops in an attempt to help King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa to crack down on the protesters.
The US will be watching developments in Bahrain anxiously as it is the headquarters of the US navy's fifth fleet, which operates at least one aircraft carrier in the Gulf at all times, along with an amphibious group of ships with marines aboard.
The fleet's presence is aimed at ensuring the free flow of oil through the Gulf, as well as monitoring Iran and deterring piracy.
US navy officials have said there is no sign that crowds intend to direct their hostility toward the roughly 4,200 service members who live and work there.
