Bahrain Accuses Doctors Of Exaggerating Protesters Injuries

Bahrain officially ended a period of martial law this week after mass uprisings nearly shut down the country in February and March. But armored vehicles still patrol the streets, military courts are still in place, and hundreds of people remain in detention. Among the detainees are elected officials, opposition members and even doctors who are accused of treating protesters. NPR's Kelly McEvers reports on how the detention of the upper-middle class is broadening the opposition, not suppressing it.
