THE UNARMED, middle-aged man in the video seems to pose no threat to the Bahraini security forces. He gesticulates at a group of soldiers or policemen, dressed in blue jumpsuits and white helmets, just a few feet away.
One of them gestures as if to wave away a nearby protester filming the incident. Then the civilian is shot.
He sinks to his knees. He stands. He is shot again. And this time he does not get up.
