The claim by Formula One’s powerbrokers that the Bahrain Grand Prix can go ahead safely next weekend began to unravel on Saturday amid reports that a 15-year-old mourner at a funeral had been shot and seriously wounded by riot police.

The confrontation between forces acting for the ruling Al Khalifa family and anti-government protesters occurred at the funeral on Friday of Ahmed Ismail Hassan, a 22-year-old journalist.

Ahmed's tragic death --- and the quest to bring his killer and any individual or institutional accomplices to justice --- will rightly dominate much discussion in Bahrain. One hopes also that his loved ones will be allowed to mourn, free from police harassment or attack.
