A video emerged of Saudi troops shooting peaceful protesters in Qatif, Saudi Arabia's underdeveloped Eastern region. Shooting could be heard and seen coming from Police cars against a demonstration in Qatif on the 21st of November last year. Here is the video:

In a similar fashion to the Syrian and Egyptian regimes' media, Saudi owned media outlets, including al-Hayat and Asharq Al-Awsat newspapers (both based in London), have been reporting that demonstrators in Qatif are "armed gangs". Western media has been largely ignoring the protests, especially that Saudi Arabia is a major U.S. and European ally/partner.
