Police have blocked major roads and are using tear gas and stun grenades against anti-government protesters in the Bahraini capital, Manama.

Protesters had responded to a call by opposition parties to march in the city.

Hundreds of youths had taken to the streets of the old market district of Manama, chanting "no dialogue with killers", an opposition source said.
