Media wrap up on Bahrain

I left Bahrain, unsure of what to make from the previous days events. There was an article about a riot somewhere else in Bahrain. The article only made it to page 5 despite the country having only 650,000 people to report on. There was nothing significant in terms of local news until then. The article said that there was a peaceful demonstration of about 200 that was disrupted by people "out to cause trouble." The article went to great lengths to distance the riot from the protest. The article said that the protest was small about 200 people, which I take with a grain of salt. The protest was to demand the release of people arrested at a previous demonstration but interestingly the article did not mention what they were arrested for. The article said about 20 people were arrested at this protest and listed names.
