Local Bahraini newspapers are on display Tuesday in a coffee shop with front pages stories about the arrest Sunday of four American journalists, with one photo allegedly showing one of the journalists with hands raised while being arrested, in Manama, Bahrain. A prosecutor in Bahrain says the four American journalists have been charged with illegally assembling with the intent to commit a crime. The prosecutor's statement says they were freed Tuesday afternoon. It wasn't immediately clear if they could leave the island nation off the coast of Saudi Arabia.
