    Mother and child hurt by Bahrain anti-government protesters bomb explosion

     

    A Bahraini woman 35, is severely hurt in the eye and face, besides being injured in scattered parts of the body by a gas cylinder that was ignited near their house by Bahraini anti-government protesters. The cylinder was placed adjacent to their house and upon ignition the cylinder flew to hit a window.

     

    The mother had moved with her son to a room at the back of the house, seeking shelter from riots on the road in front of the house. What she did not know that the rioter had placed a gas cylinder at the back of the house and set it on fire. The exploding cylinder flew into the window and the explosion was so strong that the aluminum frame of the window came off and pieces of the window penetrated the faces and bodies of the mother and the son. The mother was just discharged from the ICU. Her son, 10, was badly hurt as well.

     

    The mother narrates: I was alone with the children at home. When the explosion hit us, I fainted for some time. I then regained consciousness but could not see. I was in pain and incapable of moving. My son kept repeating: don't die, mother! Don't leave me! I managed to reach a phone and I rang my sister to seek help.

     

    The mother had severe cuts in the face and many cuts all over her body. She has had an operation this morning. Her face is fully covered she has 120 stitches on her face.

     

    Her son got six pieces of glass taken out of his eye alone. He had pieces of glass removed from other parts of his body; some in the head reached the skull, slightly penetrating it.
