Bahrain opposition seeks talks as king arrives in UK

The leader of Bahrain's main opposition party has told the BBC he is willing to sit down with the country's king to discuss "serious political reform".

Sheikh Ali Salman, leader of the al-Wefaq party, told the BBC's Frank Gardner he wanted to keep the monarchy but warned that, without reform, protests would continue.

His comments came as King Hamad Al-Khalifa arrived at Downing Street for talks with UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
