Protesters Push Back In Bahrain

Protests continue in Bahrain, where the government is allowing protests near, but not in, the main square in the capital of Manama. The opposition protesters are demanding entrance to the square to continue their call for the toppling of the U.S.-backed monarchy. NPR's Peter Kenyon is in Bahrain and speaks with host Scott Simon to give the latest updates on the protest.
