The Bahrain Grand Prix is set to go ahead today despite the outbreak of violence that left an anti-government protester dead on a rooftop.
Salah Habib Abbas, 37, is believed to have been killed by shotgun pellets fired by police as more rioting erupted on the eve of the Formula One race.
Crowds of masked protesters hurled petrol bombs at police, who fired tear gas back in the capital, Manama, yesterday, turning the streets into a battle zone just 24 hours before an event that demonstrators say glorifies repressive government.
The protesters were outraged by Abbas’s death, with around 7,000 marchers holding banners calling for democratic reforms. Some banners depicted Formula One race car drivers as riot police beating up protesters.
The violence broke out despite the security forces deploying armoured vehicles in Manama and on the main road leading to the racetrack.

Who cares for the planned snobbish multi million motor race in Bahrain?
The Shia uprising in Bahrain is rather a threat to the US 5th fleet.
If Saudi Arabia had exported carrots and fish, Washington would not have placed the base of a full Navy armada inside the Persian Gulf.
Iran is not happy with the US-Saudi nexus. Because it limits the spread of the Iranian revolution.
Only when the 5th fleet is gone, the Iranian domain of the Middle East will be completed. For Iran it is a mystery why NATO supported Islamic Jihad in Libya. The US tries to play on all sides of the table, in a bid to not go bankrupt.
If the petrol prizes doubles, and stay high for 6 months, there will not only be widespread riots in Bahrain. But also in cities like Los Angeles and Tulsa Oklahoma.
Jesus the Messiah warns us. At the end of the age of grace, there will be wickedness, corruption and violence everywhere. If the last days had not been shortened for the sake of His elect, Non of us would be able to survive.
If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
