Police in Bahrain have fired tear gas and stun grenades at protesters trying to occupy a landmark square in the nation's capital. It's happened on the eve of the one year anniversary of a pro-democracy uprising in the Gulf kingdom.
On Monday, hundreds of protesters marched through Manama to mark the revolt that was crushed by security forces.
