"Thousands of protesters took over a main square in Bahrain's capital Tuesday -- carting in tents and raising banners -- in a bold attempt to copy Egypt's uprising and force high-level changes in one of Washington's key allies in the Gulf. The move by demonstrators capped two days of clashes across the tiny island kingdom that left at least two people dead, parliament in limbo by an opposition boycott and the king making a rare address on national television to offer condolences for the bloodshed."
