MANAMA, Bahrain — Bahrain's king ousted four cabinet members Saturday as a prominent opposition leader returned from exile and urged the country's rulers to back up reform promises with action. Thousands of demonstrators marched on government buildings in the capital calling on the prime minister to step down.

Two members of the royal family were among the replaced cabinet members, a possible nod to protesters' complaints that the ruling house of Al Khalifa holds too much control over state levers of power.
