See this CNN report on the Bahraini security forces taking over the hospital in the capital, Manama, and dragging patients out of their beds:

I have been unable to get the Foreign Office to adopt a more proactive stance on the crackdown against the Shi'a majority in Bahrain, aided and abetted by the Saudis. The gross and relentless persecution of the people demands action by the outside world, but particularly the British and Americans, because the hereditary dictators would listen to them.

Thank goodness the Crown Prince was disinvited to the wedding yesterday!
