Bahrain activist dies in police custody

This is the casket of Muhammed Mushaima, a 23-year-old democracy activist in Bahrain who died in police custody. In so many countries, especially Bahrain, activists honor martyrs by transforming their funeral processions into political protests. Grief & tribute combine to inspire & strengthen others in their struggle against tyranny. The pictures on the casket read: "The martyr Muhammed Mushaima." May our brother Mushaima RIP. We can express our solidarity with the people of Bahrain at the antiwar protests this weekend. (Photo by Hasan Jamali/AP)
