Bahrain: Al Ekre village under police siege for days

Following an alleged bomb attack that would have killed a police agent (so far unconfirmed), police has put siege to the village of Al Eker, south of Manama, for at least 48 hours, imposing a de facto curfew, injuring people with beatings but also sound bombs, tear gas and other terror devices, vandalizing the local mosque, banning the entrance of food or the exit of those injured, arresting physicians, etc.
