live from Qatif, Saudi Arabia: tonight

These are not sexy videos or pictures that would dazzle the Western media, or the Saudi- or Qatari-funded Arab media. This is your beloved Saudi kingdom, after all.  An Angry Arab correspondent there sent me this:  "Tonight in central Qatif.  Tens of thousands. Seen women."  He later sent me:  "Some more pictures. Not so sure of the numbers, but for sure 10s of thousands .People were chanting with Nimr's name. Angry and sad for the killing of tonight's funeral (17-years old Sayed Mohammed Alfilfil). The demonstrations are still filling the central streets of Qatif leaving from south to north towards Lulu turn about."
