Bahrain expats launch opposition TV channel

Team behind London channel says its aim is to air unbiased accounts of protests in Bahrain.

    Bahrain's government stamped down anti-government protests in February, and since then hardly any news has filtered out of the island nation due to strict control over the media.

    Bahraini expatriates have set up a TV channel in London, with the aim of giving viewers around the world an unbiased account of what is currently happening in Bahrain.

    Despite having been plagued with obstacles since their launch last month, the small team behind the channel is determined to continue, but for now it can be watched only on the internet.
