Bahrain arrests 29 on eve of uprising anniversary

Bahrain says it has arrested 29 people as bands of anti-government protesters try to converge in the capital to mark the third anniversary of the uprising in the small Gulf island nation.


Hundreds of youths are attempting to get to Pearl Square, which was a protest hub at the center of the movement that started on February 14, 2011. The square was cleared by police raids and later razed in the early weeks of the unrest and is now sealed off by security forces. (Associated Press)
