In response to suggestions that the uprising was initiated by foreign powers - a version of events, touted widely by the regime - one female audience member declared: "This is a Syrian revolution and it's insulting to keep insisting that it was inspired outside.

Doha Debates, The  "This House has no confidence in Bahrain's promise to reform."  Bahrain's ruling family was dealt a blow last night after an audience made up of mainly young Arabs used a globally televised debate to say the monarchy was unlikely to make good their promise of reform.

The session, part of the eighth series of the award-winning Doha Debates, a leading platform for free speech in the Arab world, comes just weeks after an official investigation found that Bahraini government security forces had used excessive force and widespread torture against anti-government protesters earlier in the year.
