Mindless butchers.

What was said to be a day to rejoice turned out to be a day to mourn for all peace loving Bahrainis when a 14-year old boy was killed in mysterious circumstances during Ramadan in Sitra.

The long-awaited dream of the people to celebrate the occasion peacefully became the blackest day to remember for years.

All indications suggest that the crime was committed by a group or groups to tarnish the image of police - a clever ruse to drive a wedge between police and people.

However, it is heartening that police are in hot pursuit to nab the culprits as they have cast their net wide.

I expect a major breakthrough very soon though the case appears a little baffling. We don't have to call on Sherlock Homes to investigate as police are equally efficient.

Those who have committed the crime deserve no mercy. They are mindless butchers to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, and there are no exceptions.

The government is always willing to extend an olive branch to the misguided young, but they resort to violence, vandalism and killing innocent people without any logic.

Let's remember it's a foolish bird that ruins its own nest.
