Thousands of protesters have gathered outside the office of Bahraini Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa, demanding his resignation and that of the royal family, Al Jazeera reported March 6. Protesters amassed at Al-Qudaibiya Palace in Manama, where the Bahraini Cabinet usually meets, and chanted anti-government slogans directed at Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa. Protesters also demanded that the 2002 constitution be dissolved as it gives too much power to the monarchy. There is reportedly a large security presence at the site of the protests, with helicopters patrolling by air.
