Bahrain: Day of Wrath Number Two

This post is part of our special coverage of Bahrain Protests 2011.

Bahrain's Day of Wrath protests are continuing for the second day. Two protesters have been killed, reportedly at the hands of police using excessive force.

Here are some of the reactions from Twitter on the day:

@alibinkhalid: “@mkalkhalifa: Impressive BTV … Finally a live feed … welcome to the 21st century” exactly!

@JustAmira: Bahrain TV showing Pearl roundabout protesters LIVE #feb14 http://yfrog.com/h288kwoj

@JustAmira: Now that BTV has shown the Pearl roundabout protests, can they show the videos which horrified us on national TV as well? #Feb14 #Bahrain
