You're reading: Bahrain security forces fire tear gas on protest

Security forces have fired tear gas on thousands of protest marchers in Bahrain's capital after angry calls to topple the Gulf nation's monarchy.

Some demonstrators are moving in the direction of Pearl Square Friday, a day after riot police swept into the area to destroy an Egypt-style protest encampment. At least five people were killed in that attack.

Witnesses say they saw some casualties in the clashes Friday.

Mourners at funerals and at Friday prayers called for toppling the monarchy in Bahrain, a key Western ally and home to the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet.
