WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States condemns any attempt by Bahraini security forces to crack down on peaceful protests, Secretary of States Hillary Clinton said on Sunday.

"We've been very clear from the beginning that we do not want to see any violence. We deplore it. We think it is absolutely unacceptable," Clinton told the ABC News program "This Week," according to a transcript released by the network.

She stopped short of calling for regime change.

"We very much want to see the human rights of the people protected, including right to assemble, right to express themselves, and we want to see reform," Clinton said. "And so Bahrain had started on some reform, and we want to see them get back to that as quickly as possible."
