Continued ethnic clashes in Bahrain

Thousands of people attempted to march to the roundabout that was the main rallying point of the 2011 uprising by Shi'ites demanding political reforms and equality with Sunni Muslims. They were met by security forces who used tear gas, stun grenades and birdshot to disperse the crowd. Travellers should be aware that several countries advise their citizens to avoid all travel to Bahrain at this time due to the uncertain security situation. All public and political demonstrations should be avoided since they may become violent without notice.
