Update on Ali Mohammed Almuwali, shot by security forces in Bahrain protest

We transmit the sad news that Bahraini citizen Ali Mohammed Almuwali remains hospitalized and in critical condition with a fractured skull after being shot at close range by Bahrain security forces while attending a peaceful demonstration on Friday, June 22, 2012.

Almuwali, who is 27 years old and a father, has undergone two surgeries and sustained brain damage.  His hospital room is under tight security, and even his family were initially prohibited from seeing him.

Video below portrays the unprovoked attack.  Bahrain has rationalized the actions of their security forces, saying it was necessary to prevent “traffic congestion.”
