Cartoon of police beating becomes reality in Sanad today

Said Yousif Almuhafda, head of monitoring at the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, reported earlier that a “young protester” had been “beaten by riot police” this morning in Sanad. Said Yousif shared this picture of the beating:

A video was later uploaded by activists which reportedly shows him being arrested.

Lilly, an activist on Twitter who tweets as @iBitss, observed that the image was very reminiscent of a very popular anti-F1 cartoon drawn by Carlos Latuff last year. Lilly tweeted: “From a cartoon sketch to reality: a guy getting beaten after getting arrested. Welcome to Bahrain F1 Grandprix”.
