"The king of Bahrain has decreed that the country's state of emergency will end June 1, state media reported Sunday. Massive anti-government protests prompted King Hamad al-Khalifa's March 15 declaration of a three-month state of emergency in Bahrain, a strategically important kingdom and U.S. ally. Witnesses reported violent crackdowns on protesters after the state of emergency was imposed."
