The roundabout was occupied on Tuesday, after an estimated 20 000 people joined a march following the death of a second protestor who was killed while gathering for the funeral of Ali Abdulhadi Mushaima, who died while protesting for human rights in the village of Daih, near Manama. Others are tweeting asking for help, reporting indiscriminate firing(possibly of rubber bullets) and tear gas, as well as heavy use of batons. They say all exits have been blocked. At least one death and 200 injuries have been reported. It is also reported that the internet has been disabled.
