From L.A. Times:
Government loyalists have accused the protesters of exaggerating problems and inciting terrorist violence. King Hamed ibn Isa Khalifa told a German newspaper that the “Arab Spring” was “the business of other countries” because Bahrain was already reformed.
The Bahraini information ministry said “thugs” threw stones at police and cars on Friday. Later in the day, activists said protesters were tear-gassed when they tried to reach the Pearl Roundabout, a tightly guarded square that was at the heart of protests last year.
