Thousands of Bahrainis gather at protest rally

MANAMA - Thousands of Bahrainis attended a rally for political reforms on Saturday in the Gulf Arab state which crushed a pro-democracy protest movement in March.
Bahrain, where the Sunni Al-Khalifa family rules over a majority Shi'ite population, has accused activists of being sectarian and backed by Shi'ite power Iran. The opposition deny both charges.
