Bahrain protesters seek to overthrow royal family

A group of protesters on Monday called for the ouster of Bahrain's entire ruling monarchy as part of sweeping demands to call off the weeklong uprising in the tiny, but strategically important Gulf nation


Tensions are still running high in Bahrain after seesaw battles that saw riot police open fire on protesters trying to reclaim landmark Pearl Square last week. At least seven people have been killed and hundreds injured in the clashes since the unrest spilling across the Arab world reached the Gulf last week. (AP)
