"Bahrain released two former lawmakers from the Shiite opposition Sunday along with several other detainees who were arrested in the wake of widespread anti-government protests. Their release appears to be aimed at diffusing tensions in the small island-country, which hosts the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, Washington's main counterweight against Iran's influence in the oil-rich Gulf."
