Bahrain protesters seek to overthrow royal family

MANAMA, Bahrain  — A group of protesters on Monday called for the ouster of Bahrain's entire ruling monarchy as part of sweeping demands to call off the weeklong uprising in the Gulf nation.
The manifesto by a group calling itself "Youth of Feb. 14" — after the day of the first marches — apparently seeks to stake out an uncompromising stance before possible talks between the opposition and the monarchy.
It is unclear how much weight the group carries.
