"Clashes have erupted on the outskirts of the Bahraini capital, Manama, as security forces seek to prevent protesters gathering for a widely publicised 'day of rage' against the regime. Riot police fired rubber bullets and tear gas to break up a noisy but peaceful 10-minute demonstration by hundreds of mostly young people in Duraz, a shia village on the edge of Manama. The youths then engaged in running battles with phalanxes of security personnel. Protests also occurred in at least three other villages, a day after clashes in the Shia village of Karzakan in western Bahrain, where one man was shot in the leg." (02/14/11)
