Tho whole 'arab spring' thing, which looked like a new dawn, a flowering of democracy from the manure of tyranny, is turning into a bloody

massacre of recent years. Twenty one men have been sentenced to hang, provoking yet more violence and deaths after Friday night's rioting marking the
second anniversary of the revolution.
