Gulf News is reporting that security forces control the capital city of Manama after clearing sleeping protesters from a main square. They used tear gas, clubs, rubber bullets and even live fire in a pre-dawn raid in Pearl Square. Men, women and children were peacefully demonstrating there the past days.

At least four persons are reported dead. The staff at Salmaniya Hospital was overwhelmed as ambulances and private cars brought in the injured.

Here you can see a photo of doctors protesting the pre-dawn massacre.

Protests have now been officially banned in Bahrain.
