Bahrain Election Photo Provides The Greatest Associated Press Caption Ever

by | 24th, September 2011

IT’S election time in Bahrain, friend to the UK, haven of human rights, home to the US’s Navy’s Fifth Fleet and venue of a failed Iran-approved Arab spring. The elections do not feature¬†Bahrain’s main opposition party, the Wefaq, which boycotted the elections held to fill 18 parliamentary seats its members vacated after the protests and the Government’s crack down. (The country only has a¬†40-member Parliament.)

In the Shi’ite enclave of Sanabis, local toughs taunted police with anti-establishment chanting and vuvuzelas. Reuters say the usually peaceful police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades – trying anything, understandably, to stop those vuvuzelas.

Anyhow, the highlight of these elections is not the soundtracks, it’s this caption to the image you see above:

An unidentified woman is seen at a polling station in Hamad Town, Bahrain, Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011.

Anyone recognise her?
