A kid's collection of  rubber bullets from a  neighborhood in Bahrain! | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Extreme overusage of baton rounds/rubber bullets in Bahrain!   Notice that NONE of the munitions are of the 'AEP L60A1 Impact Round' variety that is designed to minimize head/throat/groin injuries!  

 

The overuse, the misuse, and the use of a variety that causes deaths by head & throat impacts is a Human Rights abuse when applied to civilians and peaceful demonstrators!

The demand came during the trials of Egypt's reviled former Interior Minister Habib el-Adli and deposed Mubarak over the killings, which have captivated Egyptians with real-life drama to trump the most popular Ramadan-season TV soap operas.

"I call on Western states... to begin proceedings to seize the possessions and money of Saleh and his family, because they belong to the Yemeni people," he said in an interview with pan Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat, adding those funds could be used to repay the country's debts.
