Bahrain protests : ’The repression is getting worse’ - guardian.co.uk
Sunnis talk of boycotting Shia shops and Shia night workers complain of being stopped by police on their way home. “Even among lawyers there are tensions,” said a Sunni who defends Shia clients. “I am very pessimistic,” sighed Jassim, a Shia taxi driver whose startling cockney accent is a souvenir of years of work at the RAF base on Muharraq. “Things are much worse then before.” Shia journalists are smeared as traitors and fear harassment or worse if they cover Sunni events.
