Hundreds of opposition supporters have marched across Bahrain to demand greater rights for the country's Shia population, with some calling for the ouster of the Sunni-ruled regime, witnesses said.

Police on Friday fired tear gas at about 100 protesters who tried to march to Manama's Pearl Square, which was the epicentre of the mainly Shia-led revolt last year.
 
Al Jazeera's Mohamed Val sent this report from a rally in the capital Manama.
