What’s going on here, via the AP: “A Bahraini anti-government protester is engulfed in flames when a shot fired by riot police hit the petrol bomb in his hand that he was preparing to throw during clashes in Sanabis, Bahrain, Thursday, March 14, 2013. Protests and clashes erupted in opposition areas nationwide Thursday with government opponents observing a ‘Dignity Strike’ — blocking roads, closing shops, protesting and staying home from work and school — called by the more radical February 14 youth group.”

Whoa, that’s a really effective shot by the riot police. Brutal.
