Police in Saudi Arabia have opened fire to disperse protesters in the eastern city of Qatif, a day before planned countrywide anti-government protests.
Witnesses said police also beat demonstrators with batons injuring at least three people.
The protesters, from the Shia minority, were demanding the release of prisoners they say have been held without charge.
Protests are illegal in Saudi Arabia, which has had an absolute monarchy since its unification in the 1930s.

Price of gas went from $3.43/gallon this morning here in NE Ohio to $3.59 at 1:00pm when I was on my way to work. I told my wife to stop and fill up her car on her way home. It would not surprise me if it was $4.00 before this coming weekend is over. If a camel farts in the wind in the Middle East they raise gas prices. Gouging at it's finest folks.

A flag for the topic and a star for the "antigrav" remark.
I gave up cars & motorbikes for a pushbike a while ago, fortunately.
I think I might even genuinely consider investing in a horse for the future...
