On-going demonstrations in Bahrain often result in tear gas use by police

Bahrain stopped an uprising led by majority Shi'ites last year, but protests for democratic reform continue with periodic marches and rallies that sometimes result in confrontations with police.

Travellers should exercise extreme caution and avoid all political and public demonstrations since they may become violent without notice. Several countries have advised their citizens to reconsider travelling to Bahrain at this time.
