Marquez was attacked by Bahraini police forces while covering the 2011 Bahraini protests in Pearl square, bravely continuing with a phone call report to ABC News in New York as he was targeted: "There was a canister that looked like -- No! No! No! Hey! I'm a journalist here! I'm going! I'm going! I'm going! I'm going! ... I'm hit."[2]
