Reminiscent of Tienanmen Square, the young man takes off his shirt and jumps infront of the police convoy. Totalitarian Bahrain state police were called in to disperse crowds of mourners at a funeral for a man killed by the police. He was videoed from multiple angles by anti-government protesters who have been calling for a change to the authoritarian rule in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Anti-government protests have paralized the kingdom for months, although unlike Tienanmen Square the destruction of the protest camp in Bahrain's Pearl Roundabout has so far not halted the daily demonstrations and clashes with police.
In the last section of the clips the bare chested protester appears to be carried off by his comrades (suffering gas inhalation?).
This occured in area of Sitre, the funeral was for Ali Sheikh.
Saudi Arabian military has been called in to Bahrain to help quash the calls for revolution, fearful that the uprising will have a knock on effect in one of the most authoritarian regimes in the world sitting over major oil resources.
