Unrest spreads as Bahrain cracks down on protesters

(Reuters) - Bahrain police stormed a Manama square on Thursday to clear activists camped out there as anti-government protests in the Middle East and North Africa, inspired by revolts in Tunisia and Egypt, gathered pace.

Clashes were reported in tightly controlled oil producer Libya, sandwiched between Egypt and Tunisia, as people there prepared to take to the streets for a "day of rage" after new protests erupted in Yemen, Iran and Iraq.

Nicholas Kristof (NYTimes):

King Hamad of Bahrain will never regain credibility after attacking peaceful protesters as they slept. Blood is forever on his hands.

King Hamad of Bahrain claimed he regretted violence, then unleashed it on sleeping protesters. He disgraced himself.

Bahrain barring journalists from entry at airport. King Hamad doesn't want witnesses to his brutality.

But those of us journalists already in Bahrain WILL bear witness!

Nick Kristof:

Many in Bahrain outraged that the king used mercenaries--Pakistani, Indian, Syrian riot police--to attack Bahrainis.

Sporadic clashes have broken out in the Bahraini capital of Manama, hours after riot police attacked a makeshift encampment of pro-reform protesters in the centre of the city, killing at least three and injuring dozens of others.

An Al Jazeera correspondent, who cannot be named for security reasons, said on Thursday that "clashes were no longer limited to one place...they are now spread out in different parts of the city".

There were also reports of dozens of armoured vehicles moving towards the Pearl Roundabout, the protest site that was raided by the riot police.

Heavily-armed police stormed the traffic circle while the protesters camping overnight were asleep.

The Military requests that people do not congregate in the streets as it disrupts traffic & is dangerous "

"The military has been deployed in the capital governate to take necessary measures to safeguard citizens

Bahrain army was deployed to protect citizens & residents & their liberties & properties from acts of violence.

Bahrain army will take all necessary measures to secure stability & safety in the interests of the nation.

Army requests all citizens & residents to avoid congregating in vital areas in the capital city ."

Nick Kristof:
Witnesses say Bahrain police cursed Shia as they attacked peaceful demonstrators. I haven't found 1 Sunni victim.

Crowd growing at main Bahrain hospital, chanting slogans against royal family. Will govt attack them here?

In morgue, I spoke to brother of 22 year old killed by police shotgun blast. He says King Hamad must step down.
