Ever Growing Unrest In Bahrain Ahead Of F1 Grand Prix

Ever Growing Unrest In Bahrain Ahead Of F1 Grand Prix
By Mark Farrelly Updated

Bahraini protests have soared to a new level overnight ahead of this weekend's Grand Prix, and it's almost completely inconceivable at this stage that the race should go ahead. The Daily Mail are reporting today that a protester has been found dead, after clashes with police overnight.

British Labour leader Ed Miliband has called on McClaren drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jensen Button to take the lead in pulling out of the race, amid fears for their own safety, not to mention the thousands of tourists making their way to the country. Force India racing team were forced to pull out of Friday practice after getting caught up in a Shi'ite protest. If one positive can be taken from this increasingly farcical weekend, it is that at least the world's attention has now been drawn to the civil unrest; as this BBC News report describes.
