MANAMA, Bahrain  — A prominent Bahraini opposition leader returned home from exile Saturday and urged the Gulf kingdom's rulers to back up promises of political reform with action.

The return of Hassan Mushaima, a senior Shiite figure, could mark a new phase for an anti-government movement in the tiny nation which is strategically important for the US because it hosts the US Navy's 5th Fleet.
