Saudi Police Open Fire During Protest

It is not exactly clear what happened in Saudi Arabia; initial reports of police firing into the crowd were probobly inaccurate or there would be a more then one injury of which the cause is unknown. It is clear that the unrest is growing, and if Saudi Arabia goes under or the flow of oil is disrupted; we could be looking at economic Armageddon...

"Saudi police opened fire Thursday to disperse a protest in the section where minority Shiites live, leaving at least one man injured, as the government toughened its efforts to prevent a wave of unrest sweeping the Arab world from reaching the kingdom.

The rare violence raised concern about a crackdown ahead of planned protests after Friday prayers in different cities throughout the oil-rich kingdom. Violence there could reverberate through the world's markets because of the importance of Saudi oil exports.
