Bahrain update

From Angry Arab's Bahrain correspondent: "Here's a France24 report on the killing of a 14 year old Bahraini boy by police. The story has been underreported and I've seen almost no coverage. The article has a link to a video where you can see police shooting at a group of young protestors. You then see the victim on a bench bleeding. Since they were caught on video, the interior ministry decided to launch an "investigation." However the investigation has stalled because no witnesses are willing to come forward. Now tell me, who in their right mind is going to go to the interior ministry and say, "so I was protesting and calling for the downfall of the regime and a bunch of your guys started shooting at us?" Obviously the point of this so called investigation is to arrest more people for protesting."
