We have seen a massive surge in tweeting coming from around Pearl Roundabout in Bahrain. We are reading reports in twitter hashtag #lulu of violence and injuries going from lulu to the Salmaniya hospital. We are also reading claimings post by some twitter users that the protesters have become violent, which we often see before crackdowns.
So we fear that a crackdown may be under way in Pearl Roundabout right now. We have been expecting this for some time. We are somewhat relieved to see that tweeting remains from the area, and the protesters are able to communicate and organize.
