Bombing kills a Bahraini policeman, official says

APTOPIX Mideast Bahrain

MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) - Bahraini authorities say a bombing has killed a police officer in the strategic Gulf island kingdom.

Officer Mahmood Fareed died Saturday of wounds sustained in the blast, which occurred the day before in the village of Eker, south of the capital, Manama, according to public security chief Maj. Gen. Tariq al-Hassan.

He said police are investigating the attack.

Bahrain is a small, Western-allied island kingdom off the coast of Saudi Arabia that is home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet. It continues to face low-level unrest more than three years after a Shiite-dominated opposition movement inspired by the Arab Spring protests took to the streets to demand greater political rights from the Sunni monarchy.

Some radical anti-government activists occasionally carry out relatively small bomb attacks against police, sometimes with deadly effect.

Probably some of Bill Ayers students picking up where Ayers left off in the 70's. But that alright according to the liberal's thinking!

I know this is not the subject but if officers were a little nicer today and not give everyone a hard time and maybe a break once in awhile some of us would like and maybe give them some respect. seems all they want to do is make there quota and be bully's, mind you that's what they are suppose to protect us from.

Republicans in America will point out that we are not a democracy but a republic but if you read the Constitution and Bill of Rights they contain democracy for the people. In a Republic those elected with the help of the super rich's money could care less what you think, its all lip service but people are more important to democrats so most of the time they do things that benefit the people instead of the 1% $$$super rich. All these kings in the middle east don't know what the term democracy stands for so they all will be over thrown sooner or later just like the Tea Party and Greed driven GOP in America.

Bahrain is no western-style democracy. Hence, no tears shed on those rebelling against their status quo.
