Bahrain's sectarian games

    As anti-government protesters and police in Bahrain clash on the streets once again, we get thoughts from Amira al-Husseini, Middle East and North Africa editor for Global Voices Online. Husseini is based in Bahrain and has been following developments on the ground very closely. She says that unless the authorities stop playing this dangerous "sectarian game", the situation in the country will not improve. 

    I caught up with her at Al Jazeera's sixth Annual Forum and asked her to talk about developments on the ground.
