Protests on anniversary of Bahrain unrest

A heavy police presence has been trying to prevent people marking the first anniversary of pro-democracy demonstrations in Bahrain's capital, Manama.

Opposition activists have called on protesters to march on the site of the now-demolished Pearl Roundabout - the focus of last year's unrest.

Police have been firing rubber bullets and tear gas at stone-throwing youths.

The BBC's Frank Gardner reports.
