Bahrain security forces
on alert amid protest calls

*I

Shiite opposition
groups plan
anti-government
demonstration
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates
(AP) - Bahrain's security forces
set up checkpoints and clashed
with marchers in at least one
village yesterday as opposition
groups blanketed social media
sites with calls to stage the first
major anti-government protests
in the Gulf since the uprising in
Egypt.
The wide-ranging clampdown
appeared directed toward Bah-
rain's Shiite majority - which
had led the drive for today's ral-
lies - and reflected the increas-
ing worries of the Sunni rulers
who have already doled out cash
and promised greater media
reforms in an effort to quell the
protest fervor.
A prominent human rights
activist predicted "chaos and

bloodshed" if attempts are made
to crush the planned demonstra-
tions.
The tiny kingdom of Bahrain
is among the most politically vol-
atile in the Gulf and holds impor-
tant strategic value for the West
as the home to the U.S. Navy's
5th Fleet. Bahrain's Shiites -
accounting for nearly 70 percent
of the population - have long
complained of systematic dis-
crimination by the ruling Sunni
dynasty, whose crackdown on
dissent last year touched off riots
and clashes.
Shiite-led opposition groups
and others have joined calls for
the demonstrations on a sym-
bolic day - the anniversary of
Bahrain's 2002 constitution that
brought some pro-democracy
reforms such as an elected par-
liament.
In Karzakan, a Shiite village
in western Bahrain, riot police
clashed with a small group of
youths who staged a march fol-
lowing a wedding ceremony. An
Associated Press photographer

saw several people injured and
others gasping from tear gas.
Security forces set up check-
points around the Shiite vil-
lages and throughout the capital
Manama to monitor people's
movements. Units also patrolled
malls and other key spots in a
clear warning against holding
the rallies, which have been the
focus of social media appeals and
text messages for more than a
week.
One cartoon posted on a Bah-
raini blog showed three arms
holding aloft a mobile phone and
the symbols of Facebook and
Twitter.
Bahrain's leaders, meanwhile,
have stepped in with concessions
to try to defuse the protests.
Government media monitors
began talks Sunday with news-
paper publishers and others to
draft new rules to limit state con-
trols. The official Bahrain News
Agency, meanwhile, launched
a new multimedia service that
includes social media applica-
tions to seek more outreach.

A woman shouts slogans against Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi during a protest in Milan, Italy, yesterday.
100,000 women rally aglnst
Italian Premier Berlusconi

Women say leader's
alleged sexual acts
degrades females
ROME (AP) - More than
100,000 Italian women and their
supporters turned out across the
country to protest against Pre-
mier Silvio Berlusconi, saying his

dalliances with young women
humiliate the sex as a whole and
degrade female dignity.
Backers of the 74-year-old
Berlusconi, who is under inves-
tigation for allegedly paying for
sex with a 17-year-old girl, dis-
missed the protests as strictly
political.
The teenager, a Moroccan
night club dancer, has said Ber-

lusconi lavished cash and jewel-
ry on her. Both deny having had
sex with each other.
Prostitution isn't a crime in
Italy, but paying a minor for sex
is. Prosecutors are requesting to
put him quickly on trial in what
has been the most sensational
probe against Berlusconi in
over a decade of criminal cases
against him, mainly for dealings
in his billion-dollar empire of
TV, film, advertising and other
business interests.
The premier, who willingly
acknowledges his fondness
for pretty young women and
is being divorced by his wife
for his purported dalliances,
claims he is being victimized
by left-wing prosecutors who
want to topple him from power.
From the tiny island of La
Maddalena in Sardinia, to larg-
er cities like Naples, Venice and
even foreign venues like Paris,
where around 400 people
gathered outside Sacre Coeur
church to bang pots and pans,
women pressed for Berlusconi
to resign.
In L'Aquila, the mountain
town where Berlusconi has
boasted about his reconstruc-
tion efforts after the 2009
quake damage, women com-
plained they were still wait-
ing for government-promised
funds for a center for abused
women.
