Police in Bahrain fired teargas and stun grenades to disperse hundreds of stone-throwing anti-government protesters marching in the old market area of central Manama on Friday, witnesses said.
About 10 people were arrested, they said.
Thousands took part in a second march along a stretch of highway outside the capital Manama, which passed without incident, witnesses said. This one was permitted by the authorities, unlike the march in central Manama.
The main opposition bloc al-Wefaq organised the larger march, under the slogan "Stop the shedding of our blood, we will not give up our demands".
