In a country ruled by a Sunni elite, Bahrain's predominantly Shia population has long complained about discrimination and oppression. But now they see a glimmer of hope.
Bahrain's main Shia opposition group al-Wefaq has won 18 out of 40 seats in the first round of parliamentary elections.
A run-off next Saturday could give the opposition a chance at winning control of parliament.
But the elections took place amid growing tensions between the government and the Shia majority - a number of Shia activists will stand trial this week.
The results follow accusations of fraud. Opposition groups claim the Shia-dominated areas were blocked from casting their ballot.
What is the significance of this victory, and how will it play out in this Gulf country?
