Thanks for the ** note..
The collocations in the first sentence strike me as odd. 'Hurting someone's feelings' is usually quite a petty offence - and besides, it's not clear who's feeling what; I'm surprised at 'flooded the media', though it's obvious what it means; and 'harsh scenes of violence' doesn't sound quite right to me. And the scenes weren't done 'at the hands of' anyone.'The bloody violence perpetrated/handed out/dished out/meted out /...] by government troops/agents/sympathisers/[...]', perhaps.
The only clear mistake Ican see though is 'can't afford sitting' - which should be 'can't afford to sit'. Also, some of the articles before the bits you've edited out look a bit odd; it's hard to say though, as place names can do funny things!
