A funeral march outside the Bahraini capital turned violent on Friday night as young protesters took to the main Boudaia Highway and confronted security officers who fired tear gas, sound grenades and rubber bullets.

The march, estimated by Al Jazeera’s reporter in Bahrain to number at least 10,000 at its height, memorialized Ahmed Jaber al-Qattan, a 16-year-old Shia protester killed by a bird shot blast on Thursday night.

Our correspondent said security forces used tear gas in continued confrontations with protesters in villages later at night.
