State of Emergency Declared in Bahrain

The king of Bahrain has declared a state of emergency in Bahrain for three months, putting the tiny Arab kingdom under the rule of martial law. The move comes on the heels of  the arrival of foreign troops from Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other Gulf states – a development designed to stamp out the anti-regime, Shia-dominated reform protests that have enveloped the nation in the past weeks. The opposition has responded to the monarchy’s actions by blockading roads leading into the financial district of the capital, Manama. This link will take you to a BBC video describing events from the ground.
