Eyewitness says death toll could rise in Bahrain


The Bahrain police operation in the early hours of Thursday morning was caught on amateur film by a witness in the square. Journalist Ahmed Hazim told euronews what happened:

“The riot police intervened at about three o’clock in the morning and blocked the entrances to the “Pearl” roundabout which is a sort of square. They started shooting using tear gas and rubber bullets. According to reports, three people were killed and dozens wounded. The death toll could rise. The protesters were removed from the square and several were arrested. The police cordoned off the area, stopping others from getting in.”
