Bahraini security forces stepped up their crackdown on anti-government protesters, who were trying to expand their rallies from the capital’s main square to the country’s main business hub on Sunday.

Demanding King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa’s ouster and constitutional reforms, the demonstrators have been peacefully camping in the Pearl Square since February 14.
