Carlos Latuff is a Brazilian cartoonist. Cf. “Saudi-backed Bahraini forces have attacked hundreds of anti-government protesters in the capital, Manama, as they were marching towards the epicenter of the country’s uprising. Witnesses say regime forces on Wednesday fired tear gas and rubber bullets to prevent demonstrators from reaching the site of Pearl Square, now called Martyr’s Square. . . . The violence came hours after a 27-year-old Bahraini woman, who was brutally hit by regime forces in the head during an anti-government protest rally, died of her injuries. The victim, identified as Zahra Saleh, was injured in the forehead by an iron rod hurled by Saudi-backed Bahraini troops during an anti-regime protest in the village of Daih on November 18” (“Bahrainis Attacked Near Site of Uprising,” Press TV, 7 December 2011).
