Bahrain’s military deployed armored vehicles in the streets of the Manama Thursday after an early morning attack on sleeping protesters killed at least three people and wounded 230 others.
Mourners massed at the hospital but were afraid to carry the dead out on a traditional funeral march as the government announced that people should stay off the streets of central Manama, the capital city, and warned ominously that the army would take all steps necessary to guard stability.
The crowds grew angrier over the day in disbelief over the assault against them and thrust their fists in the air in anti-government cheers.
