Our correspondent in Manama says it was relatively quiet on Friday night, after police dispersed a protest.

"There was some unrest in a few Shia villages and a few arrests made. This morning some villages have been closing access roads to them by setting fires."

Widespread protests are expected in Shia villages this evening, as well as a rally in the capital.
