Possible release?

Rumors have been flying around today about a possible release of our prisoners from Arzat Prison. We won't know for sure until it actually happens, but according to witnesses, there's a lot of extra activity around the prison today (ROP, army, tanks, etc). So, maybe they're preparing for something.

Also, hundreds are gathering right now at Dahariz Roundabout (near prison) as you can see in the photo above. They're waiting because there are tribal shiekhs at the prison now trying to negotiate changes to the committment form that prisoners have to sign in order to walk out. If the authorities don't agree to eliminate parts of the form (i.e admitting you're a criminal) the hundreds of supporters from Dahariz will be ready to head to the prison. If you're in the area, steer clear of Dahariz Roundabout and the road to Taqah.

  2. If it's not a stupid question, when these people started sitting on the floor, what exactly were their demands?

    I'm wondering whether after all that's passed in the last couple of months, this is a sensible way of trying to achieve anything...

    P.S. Nice blog :)
