Anger on Bahrain streets amid crackdown

Continued anti-government protests prompt demolition of symbolic structure in central Manama.

    Authorities in Bahrain have demolished a statue in Pearl Roundabout, as part of efforts to crack down on anti-government protesters.

    Meanwhile, thousands of people have defied a government ban on public gatherings to mourn the death of a protester who was killed in Wednesday's violence.

    An Al Jazeera correspondent not being named for security reasons filed this report from Manama.
