Thursday is the second anniversary of the uprising in Bahrain where tens of thousands took to the streets to demand political changes and greater equality for the island kingdom’s Shiite majority. The uprising was put down by security forces aided by troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The government and opposition leaders have begun a dialogue but violence continue, especially in the Shiite towns and cities outside the capital, Manama.
