Bahrain Protesters Retake Public Square

Seems Bahrain is pulling back from the brink. The protesters, mostly Shiites, have reclaimed Pearl Square. Earlier in the week police had violently resisted in two deadly confrontations resulting in 10 deaths. On Saturday, the protesters didn't meet with resistance after the royal Sunni family's crown prince said that the government is open to talks and ordered the removal of the military from the Pearl Roundabout.
