Thousands protest in Bahrain

Thousands of protesters have gathered outside the prime minister’s office in Bahrain to demand that he step down, as their campaign for reform in the tiny Gulf nation enters its third week. Protesters massed on Sunday at the Al-Qudaibiya Palace in the capital, Manama, where Bahrain’s cabinet usually meets, chanting slogans against the government and King Hamad. Demonstrators shouted “topple Hamad! Topple Hamad!”. “Hey Khalifa, get out! Get out!” they chanted, referring to the country’s long-time prime minister, Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa. The protesters are demanding the prime minister step down because of corruption and a deadly crackdown on the opposition in which seven people were killed.
