Thousands of jubilant Bahrainis returned on Saturday to Manama’s Pearl Square, the focal point of bloody anti-regime demonstrations, after police and troops withdrew in an apparently conciliatory move.
After the security force pull-out, Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa ordered that they were to stay away.
Salman, deputy commander of the armed forces, ordered “all security forces to immediately withdraw from assembly areas,” the BNA state news agency reported.
He also asked the “crowds to leave” to start a “new phase of national action that would bring together all parties.”
