Bahrain's king said Tuesday in a televised address that he was sorry for the deaths of two Shia demonstrators in clashes with police and announced a ministerial probe.

"In light of the incidents that took place yesterday and today... There have been sadly two deaths. I express my deep condolences to their families," King Hamad bin Issa al-Khalifa said.

"Everyone should know that I have assigned Deputy Prime Minister Jawad Al-Orayedh to form a special committee to find out the reasons that led to such regrettable events," he added.
