Bahrain police prevent people reaching Shia mosque
Bahraini police have disrupted efforts by opposition supporters to attend Friday prayers at the mosque of the leading Shia cleric, Sheikh Isa Qassem.
Several were reportedly hurt as bird-shot and tear gas were fired to stop them reaching the village of Diraz.
Diraz, which is to the west of Manama, was also surrounded by checkpoints.
A 16-year-old boy also died on a nearby road. The authorities said he was run over by accident, but witnesses told the BBC he was being chased by police.
