Anti-government protesters march in Bahrain

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Thousands of people held a protest march in Bahrain on Tuesday (February 11), saying the would not give up on democracy. The first pro-reform demonstrations in Bahrain were held on February 14, 2011, at the time stimulated by popular upheaval in Egypt and Tunisia. Bahrain is ruled by the Sunni Muslim al-Khalifa family and the Shi'ite population - which makes up a majority - had long complained of discrimination. The organisers of the first protests said they sought a new constitution, to be drawn up a committee including both Sunnis and Shi'ites. They also wanted an elected prime minister, the release of "all political prisoners," and a probe of torture allegations.
