GCC Forces move in

Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Forces move into Pearl Square to clear anti-government protesters blocking a road in Manama. Helicopters flew overhead and Bahraini riot police fired teargas on Wednesday as they cleared mainly Shi'ite protesters from a central roundabout where they had been camped out for weeks, a Reuters witness said.Hamad I Mohammed/Reuters
