Scores injured in Bahraini riots
by UPI

MANAMA, Bahrain -- Authorities in Bahrain said several people were wounded during an activist's funeral that turned in a battle with government troops.

Bahraini authorities said the injured occurred in riots Thursday in the northern region of Jad Jaffas where there was a "dangerous escalation that threatened civil security," Kuwait's official news agency reported Friday.

The rioting came during the funeral for anti-government advocate Jaseem Makki, who died Monday during a protest.

Some 500 protesters set fires, damaged public property and closed main roads during the riots. Police acted in response to protesters who were using Molotov cocktails and metal batons in clashes with government troops.

Demonstrators wounded one police officer and stole a police vehicle, later setting it on fire, KUNA said.
