Bahrain: The second martyr falls

Saudi Twitter user @Al Ahlawy29 posts a series of photos (WARNING: graphic images) showing the second protester to die in Bahrain, prefaced with the text (ar): “And the second martyr falls. The martyr is Fadhel Salman Al Matrook, 32 years old. He was martyred while taking part in the funeral of [first] martyr Ali Abdul Hadi Mushaima, near the Salmaniya Medical Complex, after he was shot by a bird shot gun at close range.” The images were taken from Al Wattani, an online forum that is blocked in Bahrain.
