Bahrain opposition set demands for talks with royals

Opposition groups and anti-government protesters in Bahrain say their demands must be met before they will enter into talks with the Gulf state's monarchy.

They want the government to resign, political prisoners to be released and the deaths of protesters investigated.

Six people were killed and many wounded in the last week as security forces used deadly force to quell protests.

The BBC's Ian Pannell reports from Bahrain.
