"Thousands of anti-government demonstrators who have taken over the center of this tiny kingdom welcomed the arrival Wednesday of political prisoners who were freed by the royal family in response to protest demands. Some protesters said they believed this latest move by King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa might signal the start of negotiations over political changes in the nation of 525,000 people."
