Day three of clashes between anti-government protesters and security forces in Bahrain. This unverified video from a social media website reportedly shows Shi'ite Muslim demonstrators fleeing tear gas in Manama on Saturday. These latest clashes came after the funeral of a man hit by a speeding car as he was running away from security forces. The demonstrations began on Thursday during Bahrain's National Day celebrations. Protesters are demanding the monarchy give more of its power to elected officials. But there has been no progress on political reform between the opposition parties and the ruling monarchy. Jessica Gray, Reuters
