This post is part of our special coverage of Bahrain Protests 2011.
Continuing with Global Voices’ coverage of the ongoing #Feb14 protests in Bahrain, we have compiled a number of videos covering today's developments.
Many of Bahrain's protesters have turned to YouTube, Bambuser and Facebook to upload videos from the day's events across the capital Manama and neighbouring villages. A number of protester Bambuser accounts have been blocked by the authorities within the country including @Nabeelrajab and @alaali‘s accounts.
The day's events started at Salmaniya Medical Center, Bahrain's largest hospital in Manama, where some thousands of people waited to start the funeral procession for 27 year old Ali Mushaima to bury him in his hometown in Daih. Unfortunately, riot police forces fired tear gas and bird shotgun fire at mourners, later leading to the death of Fadhel Al-Matrook.

After the 3pm news, national television broadcast the first speech by His Majesty King Hamad after protests began giving his condolences to the families of the killed and ordering an investigative committee headed by Vice Prime Minister Jawad Al-Orrayedh to look into the killings and find those responsible. He also emphasized on the freedom of protest within laws and asked the Parliament to seek the demands of the people and create legislation. He concluded his speech praying to Allah to keep Bahrain safe from harm and find reconciliation.
