Bahrain protesters camp out in capital

A tide of unrest is continuing to sweep across the Middle East.

In Bahrain, anti-government protesters camped out in the capital overnight, in an attempt to force sweeping political reforms and end the monarchy's grip on power.

The move follows two days of clashes in the small island kingdom which have left at least two people dead.

The demonstrators have descended on Manama's landmark Pearl Roundabout.
