"King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa freed 308 political prisoners Wednesday, a day after tens of thousands of men, women and children, mostly members of the Shiite majority, formed a ribbon of protest for several miles along the Sheik Khalifa bin Salman Highway as they headed for Pearl Square, the hub of protests in the country, calling for the downfall of the government."
