VIDEO: Shias in Bahrain ...

Video from Al-Jazeera English. Here is the text accompanying the video.

Tensions are simmering between Bahrain's Sunni rulers and the kingdom's Shia majority population.

The Shias, seeking greater representation in the country's political sphere, accuse the government of fanning sectarian divisions.

But as Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports from Manama, some Sunnis see the Shia-demand as an attempt to undermine the monarchy.
