ABC News has posted some harrowing audio of reporter Miguel Marquez being beaten tonight in Bahrain's capital, Manama. Marquez tried to call out that he was a journalist, but he says he was "beaten rather badly by a gang of thugs" regardless. He wasn't badly injured.

Bahrain is the latest Middle Eastern country to erupt in protest, and police are engaged in a violent crackdown, on the peaceful protestors, which has already left at least two protesters dead. Foreign journalists are apparently not being spared the violence. Here we go again.
