Protests continue in Bahrain, with thousands of protesters taking to the main square in Manama. Security forces are standing nearby, but have not intervened. Michael Slackman, foreign correspondent for The New York Times reports from Bahrain. He says that Bahrain's police force is one of the most brutal in the region, with two men reportedly shot in the back yesterday. However, today's protest is peaceful and demonstrators are calling for another big protest on Saturday.
