PARIS - G8 powers hope to see a democratic transition in Bahrain, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Tuesday, as the kingdom declared martial law and brought in Saudi troops to try and stem weeks of protests.

"Obviously we think that a democratic transition is just as important there as anywhere else," Juppe said, asked about Bahrain at a news conference after a meeting of Group of Eight foreign ministers in Paris
