Tens of Thousands Protest in Bahrain


Tens of thousands of Bahrainis protested for a second day Saturday after the burial of a man killed by police in a previous rally. The victim was said to have died from excessive inhaling of tear gas after a demonstration last week; he feared to seek medical attention in order not to attract the attention of authorities.

The renewed demonstrations broke out on Thursday afternoon, at the man's funeral in the capital of Manama. Violence also broke out in several other cities around the country, reports said.
