Rasid: Saudi police open fire during protest

Via the Shi'ia Rasid News Network.
Saudi police opened fire Thursday to disperse a protest in the section where minority Shiaa live, leaving at least two man injured, as the government toughened its efforts to prevent a wave of unrest sweeping the Arab world from reaching the kingdom.

Despite the ban and a warning that security forces will act against them, protesters demanding the release of political prisoners took to the streets for a second day in the eastern city of Qatif.

Several hundred protesters, some wearing masks to avoid being identified, marched after dark asking for "Freedom for prisoners."
