Bahrain Joins the Middle East Protest Movement

Posted: February 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

It’s not as big as Egypt, Iran or Tunisia, but thousands of Bahrain’s citizens have taken to the streets to demand their freedom, nonetheless. Protests in the tiny island nation have already led to two deaths as demonstrators call for reform from their king.

BBC:
The numbers of those who had camped out overnight in Manama’s Pearl Square were swelled by many who joined the protests throughout the day.
Security forces have pulled back to ease tensions after previous days’ clashes left two dead and dozens injured in the Gulf kingdom.
The protesters are calling for wide-ranging political reforms. LINK HERE
