MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) -- Riot police and protesters are clashing
in several Bahraini cities in one of the most widespread days of
protest in the Gulf kingdom for months.

Black-clad riot police fired tear gas and rubber bullets on
Saturday to disperse crowds of stone-throwing protesters demanding
the government resign.

The demonstrations are led by Shiite Muslim activists who accuse
the Sunni-dominated government of failing to take reform steps
outlined in a report that revealed abuses against protesters.

Crowds are also calling for the trial of police officers
believed to be behind the killings of more than 35 protesters since
anti-government protests began 10 months ago.
