The spirit of uprising in Egypt is continuing to spill over into other Arab nations.

Protestors took control of the main square in the capitol of the small Gulf nation of Bahrain Tuesday, calling the plaza their Tahrir Square.

Demonstrators are demanding greater political freedom and reform. Two protestors were killed during clashes with police, upsetting residents even more.

Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa expressed remorse for the deaths and promised to push ahead with reforms to loosen the state control on the media and Internet.

"We will request the legislative body to look into this phenomenon and to suggest proposals required to address it for the interest of the nation and citizens," he said.

New protests in Yemen, Algeria and Jordan have also sparked in recent days.
